December 5 - Studio Visit with Minnesotan Artists?

Minnesota's Walker Art Center was one of the first institutions to support net artists, and now, in partnership with the McKnight Foundation, they've come up with another project to nurture creatives. It's a web site,, with the stated goal of being a resource for Minnesota-based artists and enthusiasts. The site kicks off with a multimedia and multiplatform bash on December 5 that will include an exhibition, party, and a webcast studio visit with more than 250 Minnesotan artists. For those who have never visited the Nordic, cold, friendly and sophisticated mid-Western, American state, the studio-visit-a-thon should provide varied, lively entrees into its art community. -- Rachel Greene
