In this issue: Public Engagements

Featured articles in this issue focus on the variety of ways Minnesota artists are working actively to engage the public - not just for the sake of a moment's encounter with creative works, but to encourage people from all walks of life to deeply engage with the arts in their community. Read about Claire Witt's central Minnesota-based Blue Sky Project, which fosters the creation of "public made public art," Lightsey Darst's persuasive case for the benefits of viewing and re-viewing worthwhile performance, and Location Books' efforts to marry visual art and publishing for the sake of offering art lovers the same kind of accessibility and immediacy to emerging artists' work long familiar to readers.
