University of Minnesota Duluth block M and wordmark


Our collection of American Art encompasses a diversity of artists, styles, and cultures, with a highlight being the Richard E. and Dorothy Rawlings Nelson Collection of American Indian Art. This rich collection of baskets, birchbark, beadwork, quillwork, tourist art, and treaty portraits, primarily by the Great Lakes Ojibwe and Eastern Woodlands people, 1850-1950, reflects the visual culture of this region’s Anishinaabe people. It provides historical context for the Museum’s expanding collection of contemporary works by American Indian artists.
