Minneapolis Art Explosion(Filed under: Arts)
With the opening of the new downtown library, the Guthrie, the Walker Art Center and others—in total about $500 million dollars worth of museums, theaters and library—Minneapolis is set to be a major destination for the arts. And Minneapolis is preparing to let the world know.
Research shows that two-thirds of potential visitors and people relocating here for business aren't aware of the city's many attractions, said Karyn Gruenberg, vice president of marketing for the association. Minnesotans, who take such things for granted, don't realize that many outsiders view our state as cold and featureless, with little to do except hunt, fish and shiver.
Even without all the new editions I've always thought we had some unique architecture, like the Weisman Art Museum (pictured above).
