The Mill Yard at Stonebridge Lofts
The Mill City. Residents celebrate our area’s industrial heritage of the mighty Mississippi River and the mills. Today, what we see are the most recognizable Minneapolis landmarks. However, this is only part of the story. Rail lines were key to Minneapolis’ growth, and were particularly integral to the Mill District, bringing in wheat and timber and shipping out flour and lumber. We also honor the history of the mills, the reason for the rail yard’s existence. The Mill Yard aims to be both a gathering place for art and artists and a conduit by which art can be shared with and disseminated into the wider community.

In 2015, David Baer took the leap from working as a creative director/graphic designer to finally listening to his heart to become a “maker” full time. He and his wife, Linda, own Reveal Original, a furniture, lighting, home accessories and sculpture design and manufacturing studio with an industrial style mixing hardwoods, metal and reclaimed materials. They specialize in handcrafted pieces custom made to be functional, durable and versatile.
Emily Donovan is a Minneapolis based artist who uses natural materials in her art, exploring interactions in nature and the origins of color. She graduated from the University of Minnesota where she studied Visual Arts and Art History and is a recipient of the Minnesota State Arts Board’s Artist Initiative Grant in 2015, 2019 and an Artist Support Grant in 2021. Emily loves to travel and recently completed artist residences in Cusco, Peru and Salzburg, Austria. She also enjoys collaborating with local gardeners and naturalists to learn more about plants in Minnesota.
Dyan Padgett received a BA in Studio Art from DePauw University and an additional five years of rigorous, academic study at The Atelier in Minneapolis. Her work combines the fine drawing and design of the European Academic tradition with a vibrant and more contemporary composition and color sensibility, seamlessly blending the classical with the current. She is interested in art as a vehicle for bringing awareness to our natural environment while building community.
Ingrid Restemayer is a fiber artist and printmaker originally from North Dakota now based in Minneapolis, MN. Her mixed media artwork incorporates traditional hand-embroidery techniques, on hand-dyed papers and hand-pulled prints – process-intensive fine art mediums combined through collage.
