Recent Acquisitions
    

 

The mission of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts is to enrich the community by collecting, preserving, and making accessible outstanding works of art from the world’s diverse cultures. To accomplish this goal, the MIA curators continually search for important works of art to add to the collection. The objects are vetted by the director and trustee committee before being formally added to the museum’s inventory. These objects make the MIA an exciting place of discovery and learning about humanity’s diverse forms of expression. Each newly accessioned object enriches the collection by offering greater perspective on an artist, era, or culture. In the galleries, such objects are typically identified by “Recent Acquisition” stickers on their labels. Below is a link to select artworks acquired by the museum within the last twelve months.
