Programming is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.   
We are also grateful for the support of The Emerald Foundation, F. R. Bigelow Foundation, Mardag Foundation, The Gage Family Foundation, and The Saint Paul Foundation, as well as many generous individual donors and volunteers. This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State's general fund.
