Chamber music in bars, opera in mill ruins, plays in garages: Will these scene changes draw new audiences? Will Minnesota theatergoers embrace the Southern Theater’s “ARTshare” membership model? Will Park Square become the Guthrie of St. Paul?
Please join MinnPost for the second event in our MinnPost Social series, in which a MinnPost journalist shares insights with audience members in a happy-hour atmosphere that includes complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. MinnPost Social: The Arts – What’s Hot (and Not) will feature MinnPost Artscape writer Pamela Espeland and managing editor Susan Albright. They’ll review highlights of 2014 and note new trends in the arts. (Cocktails, anyone?)
The free event will take place Wednesday, Dec. 10, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the American Swedish Institute (ASI), in the Nelson Cultural Center’s Folke Bernadotte room. The ASI is at 2600 Park Avenue, Minneapolis. For directions and parking information, go here.
The discussion will be broken into 20-minute segments with time for audience questions and conversation. More than a presentation, this event is designed to engage audience members in an exploration of the the Twin Cities arts scene, including ways arts groups are experimenting with broadening their reach.
Register for this free event here. We’d love to see you there!
