With every event MAM hosts, we work to engage the museum community in all corners of the state and strengthen our institutions. Join us!

    It's MAM at WAM!

    Networking, Coffee, and Doughnuts

    Take the morning and network with your fellow museum colleagues at the Weisman Art Museum. Grab a coffee, mingle, and then explore the galleries! Enjoy fine art on guided tours including the new summer exhibition, Local Time.


    Five Twin Cities-based artists: Prithika Chowdhry, Sam Gould of Red76, Alexandros Lindsay, Morgan Thorson, and Marcus Young, created works addressing time as its central subject. Through installation, sculpture, behavioral practice, and dance, the five large-scale works on view offer challenging interpretations of this perpetual and infinitely vexing aspect of human experience: the passing of time.

    We believe it is time for a new kind of conference. No more panels or lectures, no more obscure topics that could never be applied to the entire profession. It is time to take a look at outside influences, personal development, and what shapes our museum community as a whole.

    This is our un-conference!
