On the main campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis is the uniquely designed Weisman Art Museum. I find archtect Frank Gehry’s original sketch of this building totally intriguing.
This sketch translated into a very unique building that is situated on the east bank of the Mississippi River and is said to beautifully reflect the image of the setting sun on the river. Since we visited when the sun was high overhead, it looked more like this…
The inside architecture was also quite interesting with complex lines in the ceiling.
As impressive as the architecture was, I enjoyed the collection of art inside even more! Three of my daughters were there with me, and I enjoyed watching them enjoy the art together.
I was pretty impressed to see works by Andy Warhol and other “big” names in this campus art museum.
And, of course, as with every visit to an art museum, I came away full of inspiration and ideas!
