Minot ranks as one of America's Most Artistic Towns

MINOT, N.D. - The Magic City has received some national recognition as one of "America's Most Artistic Towns."

Minot made Expedia's list of artistic towns, thanks to a wide variety of arts experiences.

That includes "Arts in The Parks" concerts, the Taube Museum of Art, and the Minot Symphony Orchestra.

Nancy Walter, the Taube Museum's executive director says this recognition is due in large part to social media.

"All of the arts, organizations and events, they are not new but I think that it has just helped bring it to the top of peoples mind. And it has allowed us to spread and share the importance of arts,” said Nancy Walter.

In all, 26 cities made the list.

The cities ranged in size from just over 1,000 people to around 1 million.
