OUR COMMUNITY AND VOLUNTEER INVOLVEMENT REFLECTS OUR PASSIONS
MINNEAPOLIS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN
As part of Christine’s love of original art and photography, she’s proud to showcase the work of alumni from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) at FUSE, her showroom in International Market Square. She also loves hosting special events at FUSE to introduce artists, photographers, art collectors, interior designers, and architects to each other.

Gilda’s Club – Twin Cities
Christine Frisk is a passionate advocate of Gilda’s Club Twin Cities, a non-profit that supports people living with cancer. When the board embarked on a project to create new headquarters for the club, Christine donated her design services to plan, design, and furnish the staff offices, meeting rooms, a kitchen, and rooms for art, movement, preschool care, and hang-out spaces for students.
Working in close collaboration with the board of Gilda’s Club and local philanthropists, as well the developer, architects, designers, contractors, and artisans, Christine helped transform a commercial building into an inviting and supportive environment that has become the standard for other Gilda’s Cubs across the country.

Christine and a team of local interior designers participated in a unique philanthropic initiative to support Bridging, a Twin Cities-based non-profit. Led by Lucy Penfield, Allied ASID, and Nancy Nelsen-Flom, CEO of INTERSOURCE, the team transformed Bridging’s retail store into an exciting destination for thrift shoppers, dealers, and consumers.
At every step of the way, the team’s efforts were supported by Design for a Difference, a community-driven designer movement sponsored by The International Design Guild.

The Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ) exists to permanently close the achievement gap and end generational poverty in North Minneapolis. Together with our partner organizations, we are walking side by side with low-income families as they put their children on a path to college.
We recently partnered with Design For a Difference and several other local Interior Designers and suppliers to support a renovation of the NAZ offices so that the Family Achievement Coaches who work with the families directly in partner schools and early childhood centers have a space to commune with team members, work privately or meet with families.
We are pleased to have been involved with these ongoing efforts to help those helping others. For more information on NAZ, please visit NorthsideAchievement.org
