Classical Notes

Minnesota, where the support of arts is above-average

A piece in the Star Tribune caught my eye this morning. A recent survey reports Minnesota ranking high in arts patronage.

But watch out, we're getting edged out by our neighbor to the west!

I went to the Art Institute today! I am under 18 (so I wouldn't show up on the survey) but I LOVE the classical arts, and try to support them as much as possible!
