Minnesota Original

My new favorite TV series is Minnesota Original on tpt (Twin Cities Public Television).  It's a half hour series that seems to be on every day (I have a season pass on my DVR that picks up every airing).  It features Minnesota artists of various types: musicians, fashion designers, painters, filmmakers, woodworkers, sculptors, artists who work in theater (my favorite kind of art, obviously), and much more.  Some of the art forms they feature I didn't even realize existed!  It's so inspirational and fascinating to see what amazing artistic talent exists in our state.  It makes me proud to be a Minnesotan.

Check your local listings (or DVR) to find out when and were you can see this amazing series (new shows premiere on Sunday evening).  You can also watch the features on their website: http://www.mnoriginal.org/.
