Weisman Art Museum, U MN Campus, 11/24/13.
With a James Rosenquist massive mural as backdrop, Grandma B, Poppina and I get started today with our tour of the Weisman Art Museum on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota.
Boy, was there a lot of art to enjoy: Mimbres Pottery; works by Marsden Hartley; a room-ful of classic Korean furniture; stunning portraits of young Somali men, active in service to their communities; and on and on it goes.
That was inside the WAM. Outside there's an exceptional exhibit of public art installations, 25 of which in particular are being celebrated by WAM and the U. With temps in the 20's and a wind chill lower than that, we normally intrepid art fans wimped out and instead of cruising the campus, we watched an excellent video loop of the public art, instead.
