Travel, Minnesota - Mississippi River, U of M, Weisman (no QT)

Weisman

Click for a larger photo of the Weisman Art Museum, taken from the walkway on the Washington Ave. bridge over the Mississippi River. Frank Gehry, who designed the building and facade said, "They told me not to build another brick lump."

At the June solstice, 2001, I took the photos for the QTVR movie based on the panoramic image on this page. I'm facing the University of Minnesota East Bank from the West Bank West River Parkway, accessed from the Franklin Ave. bridge. About 40 years earlier, from the top of the bank, I got the idea for the painting, Spring Snow.
