MN Original to debut on tpt2 tonight

What's the Twitter chatter this morning, Minneapolites? Evidently, it's all about MN Original, a brand new half-hour TV program celebrating locally-grown artists. The show, which is "dedicated to showcasing the creative community of Minnesota" is set to premiere tonight on Twin Cities Public Television, at 7:30 p.m and will henceforth broadcast each Thursday evening:

"MN Original cameras have been capturing the creative process in arts studios for months, and will take viewers behind the scenes to meet the elders and the emerging talents in all of the arts disciplines – musicians, visual artists, poets, writers, dancers, filmmakers, architects and designers - all of whom make up the vast array of creative talent living and working in Minnesota."

We are already looking forward to seeing a bunch of familiar faces on the show, including photographer Alec Soth, metal sculptor Heather Doyle, Plein Air painter Joe Paquet and more who will be appearing in the show's debut episode. The ep will be available streaming online after 7:30pm tonight. Here is a teaser video; for more go to:
