Yet another national pub writes about new Minneapolis architecture
USA Today is the latest national publication to write about the local art and architecture scene. The new Guthrie, expanded Walker, expanded MIA, soon-to-be expanded Weisman and the Chambers Hotel are all included in this article. Ralph Burnett, the owner of the Chambers, goes so far as to say the city has the third-best art scene in the country, trailing only New York and Chicago, yet ahead of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The story also states that Frank Gehry has "drawn plans" for a Weisman expansion, but provides no other details.
