The Minneapolis institute of Arts is a wonderful place to spend time together as a family. We visit there frequently specially during winter except that this past winter was warm and excluded the need for constant indoor weekend activities.
On our last visit to the Target family day at MIA, the featured artist was Pablo Picasso and since my older daughter Somu studied about him in his art class, we were all excited about visiting on this particular day. We made portraits using strips of paper, some hand torn other precisely cut depending on what was available to use.
It is a beautifully carved piece and worth a visit, its only there till the 15th April so if its on your list, you must visit there soon.
After the visit to the special exhibit, we visited the gallery on third floor to see modern pieces from mid century.
We also spotted a Georgia O 'Keeffe
The other very interesting feature there these days is the pop-up park. Had it been a regular winter, it would have been a killer display but since the weather outside is already very spring like the greenery of the plastic grass failed to make an impact but still the joy of watching two little girls kick off their boots and run around in the grass, even if its plastic, is priceless.
And the real treat was this dragon car situated outside in the street side parking.
Even though its not a regular feature of the museum but it shows to tell about the interesting people that make this place charming...
