    St. Cloud Friends of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts

    Comment on Facebook

    The Friends of the Institute is a volunteer organization of members of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts dedicated to supporting, enhancing and sustaining the collections, programs and influence of the MIA. Friends support the museum in many ways, by providing public lectures, buses to bring schoolchildren to the museum for docent tours, artwork for the permanent collection, and funding for innovative children’s art education programs. Two major fundraisers, Art in Bloom and Art Perchance, make this support possible. The St. Cloud Friends provide lecture opportunities three times a year along with food and beverages in the St. Cloud area. Our speakers include MIA curators and local and regional artists and experts. Our membership dues are used to send students from District 742, Sauk Rapids, Sartell/St. Stephen, and local private schools for docent led tours at the MIA. We also provide the Best of Show prize money for Visual Arts Minnesota juried high school exhibit each spring.
