Mission:Inspiration- Minneapolis Institute of Art

3 Comments

On a recent trip to Minneapolis, I had the pleasure of visiting the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA) and wandering around alone for an entire day. Minneapolis and St. Paul proudly boast several Prairie School landmarks; therefore, MIA was even fortunate enough to install a Frank Lloyd Wright entryway in its entirety in the museum.

I’ve included some images snapped with my phone of some of the most striking arts and crafts (or, in one case, Art Nouveau) pieces I spotted around MIA. Though the chairs in these images look boxy and uninviting, I’d wager they’re quite functional and comfortable in reality!

  1. Frank loved to create spaces. Even the chairs are spaces, almost like little cozy rooms.

  3. Hi Morgan: Thanks for sending this – very interesting. Minneapolis is a very nice city isn’t it. I have a cousin and we have a hephew who lives there. Wonder if you and Jonathan might have the time to come out here and join Grampa and me for lunch when you’re in town. I don’t know when you’re coming but I think Carey said you’ll be leaving the 28th. Please let me know. Love you, Gramma Jo
