Founded in 1975, the museum is housed in a building fusing the 100-year-old Carnegie Library building with a contemporary addition.
Six state-of-the-art galleries feature the contemporary art collection of regional artists including sculpture, ceramic, and glass works, a wide range of print and photography, over 300 Hmong textiles, paintings of various media, and video.
Each year, 20 to 25 solo and group exhibitions rotate through the six exhibition spaces.
