The Artist Life in MSP

Artist density in Minnesota is 150% greater than the national average,  Minnesota is second to only New York City in theatre employment, and Minnesotans lay claim to icons like Bob Dylan, The Replacements, and Rhyme sayers record label.

Despite overwhelming participation in the arts, Minnesota artists receive limited national and international attention. So, if artists remain in Minneapolis/St. Paul, can they make a living? On this episode, we speak with people creating and ask how they’re doing.  Checking on if, in a city that prides itself on arts and culture, it is indeed possible to live the artist life in MSP.
