To all you are lovers and photographers out there I just received a very sad email from MCP. It saddens me to see places where your creativity is nourished and your knowledge is expanded through the arts closing. It seems that it's happening too much and it needs to stop!
Here was the letter that the Board Co-Chairs sent out...
It is with regret that we must inform you that Minnesota Center for Photography is discontinuing business operations at the close of business on July 31st. Over the past six months we have unsuccessfully attempted to adjust our budget and, with your help, raise additional funds to pay down debt and fund continuing operations.
The Board made this decision with reluctance and after attempting whatever we could do to permit the survival of MCP.
On behalf of the many stakeholders in Minnesota Center For Photography, we thank you for your continuing interest and support of MCP’s mission over the years.
Very truly yours,
Chuck Koosmann, Co-Chair
Mark L. Wilson, Co-Chair
