The state of the arts in a state shutdown

My MPR News colleague Marianne Combs pulled together a cool post on the effects of the state shutdown on the arts for her fine State of the Arts blog.

She writes:

The Minnesota Historical Society... the Perpich Center for Arts Education... the Minnesota State Arts Board... these are just a few of the cultural organizations that are closed today due to the state government shutdown.

Some venues are partially affected by the shutdown - for instance the Minnesota Zoo is closed, but its summer concert series continues.

Others narrowly missed being shut down, such as Interact, a center for visual and performing artists with disabilities. The government pays Interact to mentor and care for 125 adults with a variety of physical and mental challenges.
