In today’s Untold Story of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack attends a panel discussion about the significant impact of Legacy Amendment’s Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund on communities throughout Minnesota.
Hosted at the Lake George Municipal Complex by the Minnesota Citizens for the Arts, panel participants included St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis, Central Minnesota Arts Board Executive Director Leslie LeCuyer, GREAT Theater Executive Director Dennis Whipple, Paramount Center for the Arts Executive Director Bob Johnson, longtime local artist Dan Mondloch, and Board Chair for the MCA Sandy Boren-Barrett.
Everyone on the panel was able to share both concrete, significant economic growth information as well as numerous, heartfelt details about how Legacy Amendment programming, none of which wouldn’t have existed without the amendment, has changed the lives of individuals and communities for the better and in ways that no one could have imagined back at the beginning in 2008.
This program is funded in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Legacy Grant.
