If the nice weather and the longer daylight hours have got you ready to get out of the house, there are plenty of things to see and do in Minneapolis to welcome spring!

Vanishing Ice Art Exhibit at Weisman Art Museum

This exhibit is a fitting (if perhaps somber) way to say goodbye to winter. By showcasing the “beauty, significance, and vulnerability of Earth’s frozen lands,” this display asks viewers to consider their place in the larger ecosystem. Featuring nearly fifty works that span from 1860 to the present from three different ice-covered regions, this event promises to deliver a wide range of views and perspectives. See it at the Weisman Art Museum now through May 13.

The play has a two and a half hour runtime and will be showing from March 10 through April 14. Tickets range from $15-50.
