The American Midwest is one of the largest, and closest, markets for Manitoban artists but many have yet to make the trek south. The Twin Cities area is only a seven-hour drive away while the region’s overall population is roughly twice the size of Canada and encompasses 10 metropolitan areas each with well over a million people.
