Much of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ Modernism collection was assembled by Norwest bank, Minnesota, between 1987 and 1998. The gift of Norwest Bank's Modernism collection to the museum in 1998 catapulted the Institute's design holdings into a position of worldwide prominence. As the collection has grown, Curator David Ryan has presented several exhibitions and created a number of brochures, postcard books and other publications. Many of these items are available for purchase in the online Museum Shop and all are available for purchase in the Museum Shop at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
