Walker Art Center

Teachers, students, art, technology, and community-- these are the necessary ingredients for successful delivery of art educational materials as we approach the millenium. The Walker Art Center sees the Blandin ArtsNet Minnesota as a site to access information about works of art in Twin Cities museum collections, view teachers' lesson plans, receive information on the latest trends in art education, and participate in thoughtful and provocative discussions. We hope that ArtsNet Minnesota will serve as a valuable, interactive tool, and become a model for the delivery of curriculum resources in Minnesota and beyond.

Minnesota Museum of American Art

Downtown Saint Paul's Landmark Center provides a beautiful and historic setting for the Minnesota Museum of American Art's newly renovated galleries. The Museum's fine collection of American art is always available, and visitors will enjoy old friends such as a striking portrait by Robert Henri and sculptures by Saint Paul native Paul Manship, as well as newer additions to the collection. Galleries also include space for special exhibitions, either organized by the Minnesota Museum of American Art or on their Midwest stop from other museums across the nation.

The Museum's core commitment to education began over 70 years ago with the founding of the Museum as an art school. We're proud to continue our commitment to education by serving teachers and students in Saint Paul, the Twin Cities, and beyond through ArtsNet Minnesota.
