50 YEARS OF GUTHRIE: EXCLUSIVE SPEECH BY JOE DOWLING

The arts are a big part of Minneapolis. Creativity is born here, and great performances and works manifest from this cradle of art.

This is a city that prides itself on not only the quality of offerings, but the quantity.

But, when it comes to quality, there is a mainstay that Minneapolis has turned to time and time again for outstanding contributions to the arts. For 50 years, the Guthrie Theater has provided inspiring and transcendent performances, and this weekend they’re giving even more back to the community.
