What's this site about?    


This program was written for students in grades 5 through 8 who want to learn about the design process by studying real buildings and objects in the collections of four Twin Cities museums.

We usually think of the things in art museums as being made by people we call artists. But many of the things in art museums were made by people we could call either artists or designers - or both.



The works of art in Spaces and Places include sculpture and architecture. You can see and learn about a grand reception hall in China; bronze bears and deer that were once part of the gates to a playground; a new museum for the University of Minnesota, and a mobile lab for neighborhood art classes - plus 12 other things!
