Creative Minnesota

Creative Minnesota

Is art a frill?  If you can’t make a living at it, is it worth bothering with?  On the other hand, the first  Creative Minnesota report, issued last year, says the Northland – that’s just our little corner of the state - benefits from over a million dollars in economic impact from the arts and culture.

It’s a fascinating conversation that needs history to give it context – and out of the box thinking to project into the future.

A lot like Rodney Dangerfield, the arts don't get a lot of respect when it comes to economic development and dollars and sense.
