One of my favorite sites, the distinctive Weisman Art Museum is one of the Twin Cities' most recognized landmarks. Designed by architect Frank Gehry, it is currently undergoing an expansion which will be completed in October 2011.
I love this building both inside and out… I always feel like I have taken a mini vacation when I visit. A teaching museum of the University of Minnesota, its collection features early 20th century and contemporary art, including Georgia O'Keefe's well-known 'Oriental Poppies'.
Sparkling in the sunlight from its perch on the east bank of the Mississippi River, you can get a rush just driving by… and the approach across the Washington Avenue walking bridge uniting the east and west banks of the University campus is stunning.
Admission to the Weisman Art Museum is free, closed Mondays… located at 333 East River Road.
