The Rourke Art Museum is an encyclopedic museum that exhibits its permanent collection along with temporary exhibitions. Its permanent collection is built primarily around the art of our Upper Midwest region; art by important 20th Century artists; and art from the cultures that inspired those artists.
Asian, Regional (Midwestern), and American Pop Art from our Permanent Collections are on display. Temporary exhibitions include recent drawings and paintings by Jonathan Twingley; masks from Africa, Indonesia and Mexico; and Voyeur, an exhibition of photographs and paintings by a trio of local artists.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
