Bring Your Friends to Meet Your Friends

Help grow Friends membership this month by bringing your friends to Mia with you.
Bring friends to Mia in February and introduce them to the Friends. It’s a great time to escape the cold temperatures and enjoy yourselves at Mia while helping our Friends membership to increase each month by encouraging our friend to join us at Mia.
Be sure to attend the Friends Lecture Series in Pillsbury Auditorium on Thursday, February 8 at 11PM. Mia Curator and Head of the Department of Photography and New Media, Yasufumi Nakamori will present “Exploring Humanity through ‘The Family of Man’.”
While on your way to the auditorium:

  • Stop by Miao Clothing and Jewelry from China on exhibit in Gallery 218,
  • Look at “I Am Somali”: Three Visual Artists from the Twin Cities in Gallery 255,
  • Wander up to Gallery 353 to an exhibit of Minnesota artist George Morrison: Drawings and Small Paintings,
  • Stay for the 1PM public tour of A Celebration of African Art in History.  

The Friends support the museum in many ways, by providing free public lectures, buses to bring schoolchildren to the museum for docent tours, artwork for the permanent collection, and funding for innovative children’s art education programs. Our major fundraiser, Art in Bloom, helps to make this support possible. To become a member, follow this link.
