The Minneapolis Institute of Arts
The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is the most famous art museum in Minnesota, and perhaps in the nation as well. It's located in the leafy Whittier neighborhood, just outside of downtown Minneapolis, and it's a real treat for any art fan.
National collections almost always make a stop at the MIA, and besides that, it hosts a marvelous collection from all over the world. My favorite MIA event, however, is the annual Art in Bloom.
During the first week of May, floral arrangements by Minneapolis artists are placed next to different works of art. Each arrangement is meant to evoke a particular work, and a prize is given to the best arrangement. If you're in the area, you should go and see this lovely show at least once. And if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can even register! [more ]
