Episode 16 – A Conversation with Margo Ashmore
When it comes to NE Minneapolis, perhaps no one has played a role in so many varying aspects in making this fine neighborhood what it is, than today's guest. Margo Ashmore is many things and has, like I said, played many roles, from being the coordinator of the nations largest open air studio tour, Art A Whirl, back in its early days, to being the coordinator of the Minneapolis/St Paul Home tour since 2005, sitting on the boards of the NE Minneapolis Arts District, the NE Community Development Corporation and Art To Change the World. Somewhere she also finds time for her own art, wether it be photography, writing, story telling and even taking the stage for stand up comedy.
Most notably, Margo has been the owner and publisher of the Northeaster Newspaper since 1981. While the paper covers all things news related in NE and immediate vicinity, more importantly, it keeps a spotlight on all things arts related being generated in our fair neighborhood. And theres a lot of arts going on here.
I hope you enjoy and Cheers!
