Now more than ever, art brings us together. The M is about the people. About the art. About the programs. Most of all it’s about you.
In this time of crisis and isolation, the role of art becomes more central to our lives, whether we realize it or not. In one short year, the Minnesota Museum of American Art (“the M”), has become a site for outstanding exhibitions and creative explorations, provocative programs, and important community connections. We are proud that A Choice of Weapons, Honor and Dignity: The Visions of Gordon Parks and Jamal Shabazz was one of our most visited shows to date. The iconic photographs from two prolific Black photographers showcase hope and inspire new generations. Previous exhibitions such as History is Not Here: Art and the Arab Imaginary and Sherin Guirguis: Here I Have Returned showcase the well-rounded perspective the M seeks to represent with our exhibitions.
Today you are invited to be part of the momentum of this great St. Paul museum and SUPPORT the M now. Minnesota needs and deserves a community-centered art museum, we need your help to make sure the M is here for you after this crisis. Please become part of the community that will usher in a new era of art experience, enjoyment, and inspiration for all—here in downtown St. Paul. Your investment is deeply appreciated and we look forward to seeing you at the M!
