George and Alice Tweed began collecting 19th and early 20th century European and American Art and in 1958 the Tweed Museum of Art at the University of Minnesota Duluth was opened and dedicated. Over 8,000 art objects make up the permanent art collection on the campus in Duluth Minnesota. Not only do they provide wonderful art exhibits, they provide ongoing learning and program presentations for UMD students, the Duluth community and the upper Midwest. The Tweed Museum of Art is one of seven units in the School of Fine Arts at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
The current exhibition Blood Memoirs: Exploring Individuality, Memory, and Culture through Portraiture opened September 10, 2013 and continues through March 16, 2014. This is an exhibition curated by Amber-Dawn Bear Robe and explores identity through the eyes of American Indian artists.
