Clinging to the banks of the Mississippi, the Frederick R Weisman Art Museum looks like it landed, rather than was built. One of famed architect Frank Gehry’s designs, the museum is a convoluted, twisting silver mass reminiscent of one of Jacek Jerka’s paintings. Though small, the museum houses many excellent pieces, including a few very striking pieces by O’Keefe and Warhol, a collection of mimbres pottery, antique Korean furniture and a bizarre interactive feature called The Pedicord Apts. Admission is free. Viewing the exterior from the pedestrian bridge is as interesting as the interior displays.
