Subject: We're a Feature Article in THE LINE!

THE LINE, a new online magazine: West End Arts is the subject of a feature article in this "launch" issue. Looks like a quality publication and we're thrilled to be part of it. Take a look and see what you think.

The Line tells the story of the new economy in The Twin Cities -- a narrative of creative people and businesses, new development, cool places to live, and the best places to work and play.

Each Wednesday, the online magazine presents original stories, video and photography to tell that story. Get The Line free in your e-mailbox each week. Sign up here.

We want to hear your thoughts and ideas for The Line. Please share them here.
