Art In Minneapolis

One-half of the twin cities, Minneapolis is a wonderful symbol of modern-day architecture and old-world charm. The city, which lies by the banks of the legendary Mississippi River is also a great spot to witness art. Minneapolis art institutes and its galleries are popular for housing some very popular pieces of art. It is also a great place to study art, with many art classes in Minneapolis. Here’s what you need to know if you’re planning on exploring art in this city:

Minneapolis Art museums - Where Art Lives

One of the most well-known and visited art museums in the world, the Walker Art Center. The museum is adjacent to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and the Cowles Conservatory. The museum hosts various multidisciplinary programs within its premises as well. Located at the University of Minnesota, the Weisman Art Museum has close to 25,000 exhibits and is also known as a “modern art museum.” The collection here is created by artists such as Marsden Hartley, Charles Biederman, Native American art and Korean furniture. If you’re interested to view some exotic Minneapolis art, then the Museum of Russian Art is the place. It is the only museum in the country that is dedicated entirely to culture and art from Russia’s history.

Minneapolis Art Festivals - Celebrate Art

The Art-A-Whirl festival celebrates the city’s artistic history and culture. With nearly 1000 members, it is the largest open artist tour in the U.S. The event attracts close to 40,000 members annually and hosts both private artist galleries and acts as a spot to purchase original art. The city is also home to the Stone Arch Bridge Festival. Named after the iconic bridge that separates Minneapolis from its twin city, this festival celebrates music, art, food and more that’s inspired by local art. 

It is also held by the banks of the river, so this art festival in Minneapolis can be a fun outing with your family and close friends. Around July, the city also hosts the Loring Park Art Festival. This features a nice, fun art show by the landscaped gardens and fountains inside the park.
