With its 3,800-piece collection mostly in storage, its staff has been seeking space, patrons and funds to revive the institution. Meanwhile, it has sent small shows from the collection to galleries and museums around Minnesota in a savvy publicity move that reinforced the museum’s name while setting Minnesota talent in the larger history of American art.
