The Minnesota Museum of American Art (MMAA) is closing the doors in 2009. I hate that. And what I hate even more is that I have never been to MMAA. However, L’etoile Magazine informed me of a show at the MMAA last night, so I took the opportunity to investigate. The show is Hot Ink: Comic Art in Minnesota.
I arrived too late to watch the animated shorts, but I did get a chance to look at inked panels, sketchbooks, graphic novels and mini comics that are on exhibition in the gallery. Amazing. Also on exhibition, is a show called Let Freedom Ring. The war propaganda and political commentary was right on. Check this stuff out, the Twin Cities is so full or culture and people who want to share with you. L’etoile is an awesome resource for viewing the arts. Visit the blog. If you are not into going out, it at least keeps you in the know.
I walked to MMAA and on my way, in an alley, I found this:
There is so much random cool stuff, just look around, you may be surprised by all the art around you.
