Visit Minneapolis Museum of Art
The Minneapolis Museum of Art established in 1883 to bring arts into the lives of the community. 1889 it moved into its first permanent space. In 1915 the current building opened the doors. It is one of the finest examples of Beaux-Arts architectural style.
Always amazed by the huge volume of extraordinary art pieces and enormous size and scope of the museum. There are over 90,000 artworks. Has collections from six continents and spanning 5,000 years.
In addition to the huge art they always have on display they also have wonderful visiting exhibitions. Right now, is the Rembrandt exhibitions and many others of distinction.
Some of my favorite art works are the paintings. Some of those arts are Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Nicolas Poussin, Edgar Degas, Eugene Delacroix, Pierre Bonnard, Gilbert Stuart, Claude Monet, James Tissot, Joan Miro, Gustave Courbet, Pablo Picasso, Albert Bierstadt, Paul Signac, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Claude-Joseph Vernet, Henri Matisse to join name a few. There are 1062 paintings! I could spend a full day just looking at them.
