Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Minneapolis Institute of Arts Target Wing
MGA&D was commissioned by The Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA), one of the nation’s leading encyclopedic art museums, to design their major expansion and renovation which includes a new 113,000-square-foot wing and 49,000 square feet of building renovation, which together adds thirty-four new galleries and nearly forty percent new exhibition space to the MIA. The ground floor contains an education center with seminar rooms, and public study rooms for the library, photography and works on paper, organized around a central skylit atrium. The top floor contains a 300-seat reception hall and pre-function space. Intermediate-level galleries connect to renovated space in the existing building.
