Minneapolis Art Museum: 1915 – 2015
2015 is the 100th Anniversary of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, which was officially dedicated on January 7, 1915. The building is located along E. 24th Street in south Minneapolis. It was designed by the architectural firm McKim, Mead and White in a neoclassical style and was built at a cost of $500,000..
This is an early postcard view of the Minneapolis Art Museum, originally made in 1914. It appears to be based on a drawing of the building and surrounding streets, with automobiles and people added by the postcard artist.
