We spoke with Luverne Seifert, co-artistic director for Sod House Theater on the morning show today. He told us all about her organization's mission to take professional theater experiences to rural Minnesota in order to inspire person to person dialogue about community issues.

Nemeth Art Center, Park Rapids

Northern Minnesota is rich in arts experiences and August is overflowing with arts action.   Photography exhibits, open mic music opportunities, artist talks, opportunities to attend world class orchestra and chamber music, a call for wearable art, and outdoor yoga accompanied by a cellist are all part of this report.

Heidi and John spoke with Katie Marshall from the MacRostie Arts Center in Grand Rapids this morning. Lots going on around Grand Rapids arts scene this First Friday.  Jazz music, wine and canvas classes, dental screenings, water color works, a book sale  and the MacRostie Arts Center's 25th  juried art exhibit are just a small sampling of what is happening as part of the the Grand Rapids, MN First Friday events.  Click on the link for the full report. 

For 11 years now, the Dragon Boat Festival has taken over the waterfront in Bemidji.  The event has become phenomenon, growing from just a handful of teams in the first year to nearly 80 teams over the years.  With each team consisting of the more than 20 people, the event brings thousands to Lake Bemidji to compete, connect and have a good time.  We spoke with Mitch Rautio about it on the morning show.
