Today, the Minnesota Museum of American Art holds more than 4,500 artworks that showcase the unique voice of American artists. We are guided by the belief that art should reflect the constantly shifting landscape that defines the American experience.

Our responsive exhibitions connect diverse audiences with subjects and issues that are relevant and engaging. We listen intently to the diversity of voices in our community, learning from our exchanges with those we work alongside.

Our mission is to inspire people to discover themselves and their communities through American art.
