What kind of future do the arts have in Minnesota?

On Monday, June 20, MinnPost journalist Max Sparber will raise this question with arts leaders Joe Dowling of the Guthrie Theater, Kaywin Feldman of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and James Sewell of the James Sewell Ballet.

The discussion, third in the MinnPost Asks series of live interviews, will take place at Hell’s Kitchen, 80 S. 9th Street, Minneapolis, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The event also includes a hearty appetizer buffet, dessert and coffee, audience Q&A and time for mingling. A cash bar will be open throughout the program.

A performer, playwright and long-time arts and culture journalist, Sparber has served as a theater critic, arts/entertainment editor, editor in chief and feature writer at a variety of publications. In 2007 he won a Frank Premack Award for Public Affairs Journalism.

Recently, he wrote in MinnPost about the death of American theater. But the discussion on June 20 will go well beyond the theater to consider the future vitality of a broad range of arts.  

Ticket purchase deadline is Wednesday June 15, 2011. Tickets — $15 for MinnPost donors, $15 for young professionals, and $25 for others can be purchased here

The MinnPost Asks live series features newsmaker interviews by MinnPost journalists in an informal setting with audience interaction. Six live interviews will take place this year. Series sponsors are Dorsey & Whitney, Padilla Speer Beardsley and Marks Group Wealth Management.
