Our small town among the Driftless hills offers more than just charm: It also nurtures a rich community of working artists, from potters to painters, woodworkers to printmakers.
A downtown stroll takes you past artist-owned galleries, studios in converted historic buildings, and endless points of creative inspiration. Join us on Gallery Night to see new works and works-in-progress – and enjoy chatting with local artisans about their craft along the way.
In 2017, Smithsonian Magazine named Mineral Point “One of the 20 Best Small Towns to Visit” – and we couldn’t agree more. Why not turn your Gallery Night visit into a weekend getaway?

Mineral Point is a small town with a sophisticated palate. Pick something fresh at our Saturday morning Farmers Market, relax in a pub, and stay for dinner to discover our culinary standouts.
Whether you prefer a hip brewhouse apartment, a quaint garden suite or a stone miner’s cottage, you’ll find memorable lodging that suits your style. It’s all just a pleasant walk from our galleries, shops, and restaurants.
Shake Rag School of the Arts draws artists from across the country to practice painting, sculpting, writing, blacksmithing and more.
