Now On View—Foundling: 100 Days

Now On View—The Nature of Shoreham Yards

Gudrun Lock: The Nature of Shoreham Yards

The Nature of Shoreham Yards is an installation envisioned by artist GUDRUN LOCK featuring the in-process work, research, and explorations of a motley collective of thinkers and makers. The focus of these efforts are the buffers of an active 230-acre train and trucking facility in Northeast Minneapolis, called Shoreham Yards. Both polluted and full of life, the buffers interface in dynamic ways with the neighborhoods surrounding them, and are potent sites of potential transformation.


B.J.O. Nordfeldt: American Internationalist

Bror Julius Olsson Nordfeldt (1878–1955) was a modernist of international reputation. With a renegade spirit that sought novel locations for new artistic inspiration, he lived in or near artist colonies in Provincetown in Massachusetts, Santa Fe in New Mexico, and New Hope in Pennsylvania. Weisman Art Museum, home to the largest collection of works by Nordfeldt, is pleased to present this exhibition from February 11 through July 10, 2022.
