This is a self guided experience throughout the campus. There is a Gift Store and a Café. MIA inspires wonder through the power of art. The Minneapolis Institute of Art enriches the community by collecting, preserving, and making accessible outstanding works of art from the world’s diverse cultures. In 1883, twenty-five citizens of Minneapolis founded the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts, committing them to bringing the arts into the life of their community. More than a century later, the museum they created, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, stands as a monument to a remarkable history of civic involvement and cultural achievements. Mia’s permanent collection has grown from 800 works of art to more than 89,000 objects. The collection includes world-famous works that embody the highest levels of artistic achievement, our objects span from about 20,000 BCE and representing the world’s diverse cultures across six continents. The museum has seven curatorial areas: Arts of Africa & the Americas; Contemporary Art; Decorative Arts, Textiles & Sculpture; Asian Art; Paintings; Photography and New Media; and Prints and Drawings. We will then head to Jax Café which has been serving Minnesotans since 1933. It is a landmark that was established by Stanley Kozlak. He left Poland as a teenager and established a restaurant business that would support three generations after him. Lunch Menu: Baked Chicken with Mashed Potatoes, Gravy and Vegetable.
