The Robert’s Shoe Building Fire is a tragedy – help these Lake Street artists rebuild.  

This building was home to great businesses and was a long standing institution for the South Minneapolis arts community.

Visit Lake Street

the heart of south minneapolis

The Robert’s Shoe Building fire is a tragedy – on many levels. It housed amazing businesses like Michael’s Hip Hop Shop and Marisqueria Mar y Tierra.

It was also a hub for artists and their studios like Rene’s Latin Dance & Music. You can read more about these artists here and contribute to their displacement fund here.

Lake Street has a lot of history – we’ve been around the block a few times and it’s always sad to see parts of that history lost, but we must and will persevere.

As new ways to support these artists and businesses become available, we will provide updates.
