MINNEAPOLIS — A new Minnesota art exhibit is about to open at the Minneapolis Art Museum, but some Minneapolis art museum visitors may be disappointed to learn that it’s not a new exhibit, but rather a collection of old paintings and other art.
The Minneapolis Art Gallery’s new exhibit is called “A History of a People,” which is titled “What a World Looks Like Now.”
The exhibit explores the history of the people of North America, with a focus on the peoples’ relationship to their environment, agriculture, and agriculture technology.
It’s a reminder that the American West has been evolving since the late 19th century, and the exhibit will remind visitors that it was in the early 1900s that North America’s agricultural practices were transformed.
The exhibit will include paintings by the famous American painter Robert Rauschenberg, whose work can be found in a variety of American museums, including the National Gallery of Art and the New York Academy of Sciences.
It will also include paintings from other artists, including American artist and landscape painter Carl Van Vechten, who is best known for his paintings of the mountains and prairies of Montana.
