We know the Twin Cities are a great place to live when it comes to art and culture. From First Avenue to the Walker to the Guthrie and every coffeehouse and punk club in between, the arts have always been a thiving part of our quality of life. So is there a connection between economic health and the role that art and culture have to making this a great place to work and call home? And what's more important — lots of jobs, or having a "cool" reputation — when you want to attract top talent?

The Morning Show's Steve Seel and Peter Leggett, Chair of Saint Paul's Cultural STAR Board, Director of Walker West Music Academy and Drummer for Heiruspecs discuss the topics above as they gear up for the next Policy and a Pint.

"Policy and a Pint: Home Is Where The Art Is" takes place Monday, Dec. 16, at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis. It's part of our State of the State series, made possible with support from Target Corporation. Doors open at 5:30, program begins at 6.
