Every year, the M purchases a piece from the Minnesota State Fair’s Fine Arts exhibition. This year’s selection is a work by St. Paul-based printmaker Sam Orosz.
Exhibition guest curator Johnnay Leenay and the M’s Arts Access Manager and Curator of Exhibitions and Public Programs discuss the new show, its place in the life of the museum, and how the nuances of American identity play into questions of “arts access.”
Kristin Makholm, Executive Director of the M, is interviewed by AM 950’s Betty Folliard about the museum’s history and future for “A Woman’s Place.”
