Today is the final day of our campaign to increase MinnPost’s arts coverage.
More than 100 arts lovers have already pitched in to help us expand Artscape by Pamela Espeland from two times per week to four. We’ve almost reached our goal of $10,000—but we need your help to finish the campaign.
As a bonus, every donation is being matched dollar-for-dollar, thanks to a group of generous challenge donors.
We know there are many worthwhile causes out there. But you’ve told us that you value our arts coverage–so don’t miss your chance to help us grow.
Here are some of the reasons our readers have given for supporting this coverage:
