Where's Art? If a tree falls in the forest and no one paints it, who will call attention to artists?

Perfect Duluth Day turns 18 tomorrow.

It can get a tattoo,  a license to be an auctioneer, vote, marry without parental consent, buy cigarettes, possess a stun gun, and buy lottery tickets in Minnesota.

  But one thing it's been doing all along is drawing attention to art and artists, and Annie Dugan thinks that's just grand.

Read about the Frank Lloyd House that used to be in Cloquet and is now in Pennsylvania, and find out more about the one and only gas station the famous architect designed.

The American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO) is bringing in-person community events back with their Indigenous Food & Art Market, the second and 4th Saturdays of the month.

It's the perfect pairing of food and art!

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
