We are located at 6666 East River Road, Fridley, MN 55432 –approximately 1.5 miles north of 694 between Mississippi Street and Osborne Road.

The BLCA is located on a Metro Transit bus line 852– Express, Anoka, Coon Rapids, Northtown, Minneapolis.

We are also located on the Mississippi River Trail bike route.  Use the parking lot as your starting point, stop in to see some art, and then ride north or south along the river trails!  Bike parking is available outside the Banfill building.


Most exhibitions and classes are located on the ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. However, the BLCA is located in a historic building with accessibility restrictions including narrow doorways, no elevators, and uneven floors. We are happy to relocate any BLCA activity to our ground floor classroom or galleries to ensure accessibility and are open to discuss any further accommodations you may need!
