The Minnesota Museum of American Art was not something I thought would be up my alley. Modern art doesn't tend to grab my attention, and when it does, it's usually in a dismissive "what is this?" sort of way.
I was surprised to find several pieces that I couldn't help asking the staff about; I wanted to know more about this beautifully curated and clearly well-thought-out exhibit. It turns out they also do a lot of classes for local kids, and host a Materials Lab where anyone can come in and get creative. If you're in the Twin Cities, check it out!
