State Fair Fine Arts // Ifrah Mansour

Salutations SOTAns! We are excited to be back from our short break! This episode, we discuss the unveiling of Kehinde Wiley’s Rumors of War in Times Square and the implications of its final home in Richmond, VA. Then, we bring you back to the great Minnesota get-together, the MN State Fair! More specifically, we talk about the Fine Art Competition at the fair. How does this exhibition serve and reflect our communities? Why are MN artists so attached to it? Finally, Sarah presents a knock-out interview with local artist, Ifrah Mansour!
