Art in Bloom Fund-A-Need
For over 20 years, the Friends Transportation Fund has funded school buses for thousands of students to visit the museum each year. The children are led on a guided tour of Mia’s world-renowned art collection and enjoy a fun and educational field trip.
At least one large-scale study has shown that field trips to art museums can improve students’ knowledge of and ability to think critically about art, a stronger display for historical empathy and a greater tolerance of differing views.
Help us expand Mia’s ability to inspire wonder with the power of art and reach even more Minnesota children and teens—please consider purchasing a school bus!
1 school bus, 40-50 kids: $200
2 school buses, 80-100 kids: $400
4 school buses, 160-200 kids: $800
