Inspiration, Creativity, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts

2015

Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Editor

The Art of Wonder

The setup was open-ended and deceptively simple: muse about art and the nature of creativity and wonder

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, on the occasion of its 100th anniversary in 2015, commissioned imaginative works from some of the finest artists working today. By turns delightful and reflective, The Art of Wonder is a contemporary argument for art’s ongoing vitality.

Wonderfully accessible.

Not Even Past

On the occasion of its 100th anniversary in 2015, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts asked some of the finest writers, photographers, and illustrators working today to muse about art—the nature of creativity and wonder. No instructions. No rules. The MIA commissioned these imaginative works not as a celebration of itself but of art as inspiration—an anthology of wonder.

The contributors rose to the challenge with fiction, essays, photojournalism, and illustrated stories, by turns delightful and reflective, a contemporary argument for art’s ongoing vitality. Interspersed in the book are personal reflections from the museum’s own director, curators, and staff on beloved artworks in its collection.
