Heart of the Beast Theater, located in Midtown Phillips, is a renowned Minneapolis institution.

Doubtless because of its ethnic and racial diversity, Phillips' artistic and cultural life is dazzlingly vibrant. Artistic communities of every sort reside here, and the neighborhood's racial and ethnic groups celebrate their heritage with countless cultural and religious ceremonies, musical presentations, arts and craft displays, and not least important, culinary exhibits. This section can only begin to suggest the scope and variety of these activities.
