Everyday People, Extraordinary Acts




September 13, 2012

Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts

Everyday heroes--people who struggled with difficult circumstances and often became stronger through their hardships--have inspired artists in various times and places. Explore works of art that embody the character, spirit, and commitment of people, such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose actions have had a profound impact on history and society.

Here is a sampling of works of art you could view and discuss in the classroom or on a visit to the MIA. Note: Not all of these artworks may currently be on view; be sure to check in advance of a museum visit.
