The Guthrie Theater brought world class theatre to Minnesota and the surrounding states. It has enriched both the adults and students who have attended and has kept the bar high for the other great theatres in the area.

The original building by the Walker Art Center. The first regional theater in the U.S. Made it possible for people to see the classics outside of New York on a thrust stage. The design of the theater itself was also important.
Tyrone Guthrie He brought professional theater in a big way to the Twin Cities and the state. What a transformation in the cultural scene his presence made. What a bold thought by one man - it is now known around the country for his major influence in midwestern theater.

I would really like to make a nomination for especially the arts and the Guthrie. I just get so excited about how amazing the Twin Cities actually is as a center for the arts and architecture-such as the Guthrie. I think it would be fantastic to share this information with others who may not be as familiar with it, in fact, I would love to learn more about these too.
