Minneapolis Institute of Art

A wander around the Institute’s permanent collection followed the visit to the Martin Luther exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Here are some of my favourites.

The hanging sculpture is Ahab by Alexander Calder (1953). If anyone knows what the piece on the wall is, I’d be grateful to hear from you.
