Minnesotans are known for their voluntary spirit and Minnesota nonprofits benefit greatly from the voluntary bonhomie of its citizenry.
Maybe you heard about the following art exhibits when they first opened with big splashes and a great deal of publicity. But they were scheduled to be here for weeks or months, so plenty of time. And then other things came along, and they slowly disappeared from front of mind.
There are plenty of beautiful places in the Twin Cities if you’re looking to for the perfect background to compliment your next selfie. But which locale will get you the most “likes” on Instagram?
More often than not, it takes at least six months to a year (if not longer) for festival movies to arrive in the Twin Cities, especially given all the titles distributors hold onto until Oscar season kicks into high gear.
