ADC Fine African Art Gallery

The African Development Center is also home to an extraordinary fine African art gallery. We feature innovative and one-of-a-kind art pieces that are inspired by the plethora of dynamic cultures streaming from the global African diaspora. The gallery’s regular operating hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., but the gallery is also open based on the Meridel LeSueur Conference Room’s bookings.

The ADC Art Gallery offers flexible financing options for purchasing original art pieces. Guests may also pre-order modestly priced reproductions of select original paintings. These colorful reproductions are printed on linen canvas with gallery-wrapped edges that allow you to hang the pictures with or without a frame.

ADC Business Center

The African Development Center has a great opportunity for small businesses needing office space. At our ADC Business Center building (adjacent to our Main Office at 1931 5th Street South), we currently have a total of 1,000 square feet of space available in 4 separate offices. Two of the spaces could be combined for a larger space of 636 square feet. 
This is a prime location to do business: close to downtown Minneapolis; nearby access to I-94, I-35W and light rail transit; and important neighbors including the University of Minnesota, Augsburg College, Fairview Healthcare Services, and Amplatz Children’s Hospital. It is a lively area, but we offer a quiet, professional place to do business. 
Rents are reasonable and all-inclusive, with a simple lease and flexible terms. We have a beautiful new outdoor patio/dining area attached to our property, which includes the popular Jambo Kitchen. Please contact ADC staff-member Rich Thomasgard at 612-877-8265 for more information or to view the space. Walk-ins are welcome also!
