Attending Art School in Minneapolis

In a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, commentator Alan Solomon, fresh from his tour of Midwest cities, declared the city of Minneapolis to be the best Midwestern city for culture and the arts. Such a declaration may seem questionable when considering the presence of the Mall of America in nearby Bloomington; however, the “city of water” (so named as it boasts one river and twenty lakes) offers one of the best art scenes in the entire country.  Evidence of this can be found in the northeast section of the city where the bustling Arts District is a hotbed of experimental (and often daring), exhibitions. Most significantly, the Northrup King Building, a creative center housing over 130 artists, is always drawing crowds with various shows, weekly First Thursday openings, Art-A-Whirl, and Art Attack. Any art student hoping to connect with local artisans will certainly find some talent with which they can identify or relate. Additionally, the city offers fantastic opportunities for art enthusiasts through its annual festivals; festivals such as the Stone Arch Festival on the Riverfront, the Uptown Art Festival (running concurrently with the smaller Loring Art Fair), and the Fringe Festival, which invites visitors to consider the city’s more unorthodox mediums. Moreover, Minneapolis’ most popular museums include the recently expanded Walker Art Center, which maintains the largest urban sculpture garden in the country and features the oft admired “Spoonbridge and Cherry”. The Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, with Van Gogh’s Olive Trees gracing its permanent collection, is also a very popular venue. Finally, University of Minnesota’s Weisman Museum, designed by architect Frank Gehry, is one of the nation’s largest public art programs. There is no question that art students deciding to attend school in Minneapolis will find ample opportunities to develop their craft, learn from the talents of like-minded peers, and, when overcome with the excitement of success, may even toss up their hats in the middle of downtown and sing “Love is All Around” a la Mary Tyler Moore.
