Minnesota Museum of American Art makes a bid for revival

Since money troubles forced the Minnesota Museum of American Art to close its St. Paul galleries in January 2009, it has been something of a zombie museum. 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.

Ouch, this is a tired strung together review. If this is the best Ms Abbe can do, then I'll argue pull the plug on reviewing Strib art, or hire someone netter.

A better story might be that the MMAAs new space in St. Paul is not wheelchair accessible. As a person with mobility issues and a DONOR(!) I'm wondering what public money is involved to allow over-riding the ADA laws and which foundations are allowing to limit certain 'social groups' from participation. When turned away from the new space on account of stairs at the entrance the only answer we received was 'I know, we have gotten quite a few complaints'. There is NO mention on their web sight stating wheelchair entry is not possible.
