Spanning the twentieth century, the works in Hidden Gems encompass the experimentation, imagination, and creativity associated with modern art. Featuring works by artists such as Josephine Lutz Rollins, Cameron Booth, Ada Wolfe, Bela Petheo, Frances Greenman, and Eugene Larkin, Hidden Gems honors the pioneers of Minnesota art through a range of media, subject, and styles. The exhibit is filled with art inspired by impressionism, Expressionism, Fauvism, and Abstract Expressionism from the Museum’s permanent collection.
This exhibit was made possible in part by the people of Minnesota through a grant funded by an appropriation to the Minnesota Historical Society from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. Any views, findings, opinions, conclusions or recommendations expressed here are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the State of Minnesota, the Minnesota Historical Society, or the Minnesota Historic Resources Advisory Committee.
Hennepin History Museum thanks Peggy and David Lucas for sponsoring Hidden Gems, which included renovations to our Main Gallery to allow for the best possible exhibition of this artwork.
