Frederick R. Weisman Museum

I graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1994, a year after the new Weisman Museum was built. In fact, I walked back and forth across the Washington Ave bridge and watch it go up day by day. This was three years before his Guggenheim  structure in Bilbao, Spain created the “Bilbao Effect” where cities would hire starchitects to build buildings that would draw tourists. And, well before the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles built in 2004. But, you can see them all in the humble Weisman Museum perched on the Mississippi and captured so beautifully by MKB Photography below:
