Selections from The Minneapolis Institue of Arts

A very limited selection since most of the images turned out awful (crummy lighting + no flash photography + older camera + novice photographer = less than stellar images).

MIA entrance
Mobile (huge fan of mobiles so this was a highlight)
glass collection


A stunning museum filled with so many different collections. I'll never forget  Chuck Close's Frank. It was one thing learning about his style in Art Appreciation class but to see it up close is remarkable. It was a truly memorable experience, I could stare at it for hours.
