Minneapolis Institute of Art's "Foot in the Door" will go virtual
It only comes once a decade, and this year it’s a virtual affair. The Minneapolis Institute of Art’s “Foot in the Door” exhibition — offering any Minnesota artist the chance to show work at the state's biggest art museum — is going completely virtual. The show takes its name from the exhibition’s one requirement: artwork must not be bigger than one cubic foot.
In 2010, more than 4,800 Minnesota artists participated, exhibiting everything from a zombie yeti to a baby doll with a chicken head and many-breasted monsters. Former Star Tribune art critic Mary Abbe compared it to a “truly crazy thrift shop,” albeit one that attracted 102,000 visitors.
