Permanent Collection | digital home

Over the next three years, the Art Museum will be making our collection available online as part of the University of Minnesota’s project, “Mexican American Art Since 1848”, a portal of the Rhizomes initiative. This project is generously funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Please stay tuned as we develop this resource.
