Foot in the Door

We were able to check out the Minneapolis Institute of Arts this weekend. They have a great exhibit going on (for free!) called Foot in the Door. This exhibit happens only every 10 years, and they allow Minnesota artists of all kinds to submit work for this exhibit. Anyone can submit as long as the work fits within 1 cubic foot.

This year was the 4th time they've had this exhibit - the first one, in 1980, had 470 artists - today, they have over 5,000 pieces of work in the exhibit and is the state's largest exhibition. There are some very unique works and many that cause conversation about what it is or why it was created. Someone could spend hours and hours looking at all of the artwork. It was amazing and caused us to redefine our definition of art.
