If you have never been to the Weisman Art Museum (WAM) you have most likely heard about it or even wondered “What is in that striking stainless steel building” on the banks of the Mississippi river in Minneapolis.
Widely known for it’s bold architecture, the museum was designed by Architect Frank Gehry who’s work has been described as powerful, geometric and profound.
The Weisman presents and interprets works of art, offering exhibitions that place art within relevant cultural, social and historical contexts. Several major exhibitions are offered each year, as well as organized letters, symposia, tours and special events focused upon educational themes.
The Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota creates art experiences that spark discovery, critical thinking, and transformation, linking the University and the community.
The museum offers an extensive permanent collection of art which includes American Modernism, Ceramics, Korean Furniture and more. They also have ever changing exhibits and events including afternoon architecture discussions. Check their website for current dates and times.
