Artists Connect At Creative Social Hour

I’ve consistently been impressed with the art scene in Minot, North Dakota. This prairie city isn’t large, but it boasts more than its fair share of creative people and artistic outlets. Minot has a symphony, a thriving live music scene and several successful fashion designers. Plus. there’s a local jewelry designer, an indie bookstore and handful of museums and art galleries in its downtown district.

This is a place where I can snap photos of public art and the discuss the local punk scene with my bartender. That kind of art/life integration and community support is an incredible resource for artists and innovators. And now there’s a new way for Minot creatives to connect. It combines two things I adore — collaborating with other artists and a theme party — into one very cool event. I’ll let Tori from Tori Dany Designs tell you more about it.

Here’s Tori!
