Mission Statement

The Tweed Museum of Art, University of Minnesota Duluth, functions as an art collecting and teaching institution that promotes learning through collection stewardship, research, and by presentations in the visual arts for the engagement program of the University and surrounding communities.

Description

The Tweed Museum of Art has a global collection of over 10,000 objects spanning eight centuries. Diverse media, such as paintings, photography, ceramics, prints, cultural objects, and sculpture from the core collections with digital prints, textiles, and animation and computer media, broadening the scope of work. The museum and its initial collection began with the 19th century European and American artworks collected by George P. Tweed and gifted to the Tweed Museum by his widow Alice Tweed Tuohy. The collection's strengths are 19th century French Barbizon art, American art, drawings and prints, photography, and contemporary Native and Indigenous art. Today, the collections have grown to be global and diverse in large part due to prominent acquisition funds that allow the Tweed to remain relevant to its communities.
