One of the best things about living in such a thriving arts community is that there is no shortage of amazing museums, theaters, and musical opportunities. Living in the middle of all of it, I think we often forget what is around us.
I first visited The Museum of Russian Art a few years ago on a Groupon (which, by the way, I’ve always thought was a great way to try new things) and enjoyed it immensely!
Then I promptly forgot about it.
A few weeks ago, Z and I were looking for a weekend adventure and decided to head to Minneapolis to see an exhibit that was only there for one or two more days: Stage Designs by Vera Mednikova: From Pushkin to Hawthorne. It was amazing. I’m glad we went!
The museum is gorgeous – with nooks and crannies and more exhibits than I had remembered. We easily could have spent more time there than we did. Other exhibits that I found inspiring and interesting:
Gorgeously displayed with fantastic information as part of the introductions and on each piece. The exhibitions they have up and coming look equally incredible and I’m sure we’ll be back – a great afternoon date!
