    Analysis: Northland Poster shows strong link between art and activism - By Elliot Ward, Workday Minnesota
    Minneapolis - The massive show of support to save Northland Poster Collective is a testament not only to the good work Northland does, but to the important role art plays in organizing.

    The collective, recently in danger of having to close its doors, is staying in business because of a campaign started by supporters that raised $200,000 in financing. Co-founder Ricardo Levins Morales said people reacted to the possibility of closing "like a lifeline being cut off."
