This is an art museum situated inside the campus of the University of Minnesota and used as a teaching museum since 1934. The museum has been named after Frederick R. Weisman who was a famous art collector of the city. The museum is often calledthe Modern Art Museum that houses a collection of more than 20000 pictures and images.
The current building was designed by frank Gehry and his master mind has created such a structure that is an awesome thing in itself. The design of the museum is such that it looks different from two different views. From a side it gives a brick façade design of sandstone buildings and from the other gives a playful angular asymmetrical design. This is also a reason for the popularity of the museum. Nonetheless, the museum is an important part of the university.
