Cabinet of Curiosities at the Minneapolis Institute of Art

Cabinet of Curiosities was a Halloween presentation of fine art prints from the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s collection that took place in the Print Study Room. Drawing from the museum’s collection of 40,000 prints, the subjects selected were horrific, weird and wonderful and explored the darker side of the human experience. This was one in a series of ongoing presentations at the Print Study Room designed to engage the creative spirit of members of the American Institute of Graphic Arts, Minnesota Chapter.

The afternoon presentation consisted of the display of 25 prints from Mia's collection and a short lecture on the lives and times of a few of the artists. The graphic above was used to identify the event and publicize it on the AIGA website.
