Tweed Museum of Art is a mid-sized regional art museum with a small, talented and dedicated staff. Museum programming features an ongoing schedule of exhibitions throughout its nine galleries, and an extensive array of life-long learning and community outreach programs. The museum personnel work often in collaboration with colleagues of Duluth-area cultural institutions, as well as public-school teachers, college faculty and dedicated volunteers. Staff members train interns, volunteers, and part-time student staff annually, preparing them for further study and work in the field of museum practice. The Museum attracts an audience fully reflective of the demographic range of the region to its programs, resources and services, including tourists and international scholars. With a permanent collection of over 10,000 art objects representing a range of cultures and periods of art history, the Tweed Museum of Art on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth is a major cultural and educational resource for the Upper Midwest.
