(*) Minnesota Statutes 13D.021 states that agencies may conduct public meetings by phone or other electronic means if the presiding officer, chief legal counsel, or chief administrative officer for the affected governing body determines that an in person meeting is not practical or prudent because of a health pandemic or an emergency declared under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 12.


Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the governor's declaration of the peacetime emergency under chapter 12, and the governor's stay at home executive order, the Arts Board has determined that it will not be feasible for advisory panel members to participate in these meetings in person.


Board Meetings and Board Committee Meetings

All board meetings are open to the public, in accordance with the guidelines of Minnesota’s Open Meeting Law. Generally, meetings begin at 11:00 a.m. and are held in the Arts Board office. Any change in time or venue will be announced in advance and noted below.


Any member of the public who has questions or comments about board or committee meeting processes or topics discussed may contact Sue Gens, executive director, at Sue.Gens@arts.state.mn.us.


Any member of the public who has questions about accessibility, or accommodation to attend or listen to meetings, may contact Natalie Kennedy-Schuck, accessibility coordinator, at Natalie.Kennedy@arts.state.mn.us.
