Somali Artist Aar Maanta Concert and Residency Program Cancelled
Aar Maanta Minnesota Residency Cancelled

Visa delays have caused series of community residency programs and concerts by a London-based Somali artist to be cancelled, including the events at St. Cloud State University.

Aar Maanta and his band The Urban Nomads were to be part of a program called "Midnimo" which entails university and community educational programs and concerts in Mankato, Minneapolis and St. Cloud. His nearly month-long residency was cancelled after organizers at the Cedar Cultural Center say the US Consulate held the artist's visa application because it was still "undergoing additional administrative processing." However, four members of Aar Maanta's band, who are not Somalian born or Muslim, were all granted their visas. The visa applications were all submitted in May.

The St. Cloud residency included the artist participating in several university classes, working with children at the Boys and Girls Club of Central Minnesota, and events with the St. Cloud Technical and Community College.

The Paramount Visual Arts Center is a lead partner in the grant funded program, and their Director of Education and Outreach, Jane Oxton says eleven college, school and community sites have been impacted by the cancellation, and it's a loss of an opportunity to learn and deepen cultural understanding from a world-class artist.

The Midnimo program is based on a two year grant from the Doris Duke Foundation with a goal of increasing understanding of Muslim culture through performing arts.

It's now easier to travel through Clearwater, Minnesota.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation opened the new Mississippi River Bridge to vehicles today. All lanes of Highway 24 are now switched onto the new Highway 24 bridge.

The new bridge spans the river and Wright County Road 7, or Mainstreet in Clearwater. The old bridge was 57-years-old and work to replace it began two years ago.

Minn-DOT says an average of 16,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily, with weekend recreational drivers from nearby Interstate 94 and Highway 10 creating a much higher volume of traffic.

The new bridge has wider lanes, shoulders and a pedestrian trail separated by a concrete barrier for safety.

The old bridge will be removed fully by 2018. Here's a link to the Highway 24 live webcam.
