After being closed for about a year for renovation, the University of Minnesota‘s Weisman Art Museum is reopening, with a gala event this weekend — Sunday, Oct. 2 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Here’s the association’s article on it, along with some more sneak-peek photos.
Here’s an intro by MPR’s Marianne Combs on her State of the Arts blog, though reporter Euan Kerr is scheduled to post his piece on it tomorrow. (I’ll add the link here.)
Update: Here’s the story.
And here’s the Weisman’s Web page.
