Location: Children’s Theatre Company, United Health Group Stage

Arts lovers, educators and members of Twin Cities art organizations: Join us again for an enlightening panel discussion with Twin Cities arts leaders in a wide-ranging conversation about how they showcase their work and engage audiences, even as new budget pressures loom. Why do the arts matter, and should public money support them? How can they thrive in the current climate? U.S. representative Betty McCollum joins to provide a policy perspective. Arts critic Graydon Royce will moderate.
