A teaching museum for the University of Minnesota and Twin Cities community, the museum presents an array of exhibitions, public programs, and entertaining special events throughout the year. The museum’s collection has more than 25,000 works, featuring American art from the first half of the twentieth century, including major works by Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Milton Avery, and Alfred Maurer and a collection of contemporary art. It also has one of the largest collections of traditional Korean furniture. The museum's 18,000 sq ft of space can be visited in about one hour. With teaching as its central mission, the museum utilizes the resources of a great research University, offering audiences access to new perspectives on art and culture. Housed since 1993 in a striking new stainless steel and brick building, designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, the museum serves a university community of more than 60,000, as well as the thriving cultural community of the Twin Cities and Minnesota.
