Bring on the Yellow School Buses!

The Friends of the Institute plays a key role in bringing students to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Our Transportation Fund, an endowed fund, annually awards MIA transportation grants to Twin Cities public and private schools. This school year, the Fund, bolstered by additional funding from the Friends, extended grants totaling $16,835 to 54 schools. The Friends’ generosity will allow approximately 4,500 students in grades K-8 to take advantage of tours of the MIA’s outstanding permanent collection and special exhibitions. As a Friend of Institute member, you helped make this happen! The Transportation Fund grant application for schools K-8 will be available in August on the MIA website at
