Louvre It or Leave It is unique in so many ways. First off is the location – divided among a few galleries in the office building Crowne Plaza Minneapolis Northstar Downtown (a name that simply trips off the tongue). Passersby may look in the plate-glass windows and assume the museum is an upscale art gallery.
The quirky and eclectic collection of art was a donation of Joann and Gary Fink, from their Phynque Phamily Phoundation. The pieces include sculptures, paintings, photography, cartoons and prints – even a sculpture of the Marx Brothers.
Be sure to head down the hall from the main, front gallery to see the another large collection and one smaller room, tucked in a corner. What a wonderful, fun and generous gesture!
