The Raymond and Ruth Reister Collection

Raymond and Ruth Reister were both passionate supporters of Minnesota art and the Minnesota Historical Society. Through their estate, they donated a collection of more than 30 works of art—consisting of landscapes, figurative work and abstract compositions that span much of the 20th century—to MNHS.

In this exhibit, view the works donated by the Reisters, including notable Minnesotans Charles Beck, Nicholas Brewer, Alexis Fournier and Clement Haupers, as well as other recent MNHS art acquisitions. "The Raymond and Ruth Reister Collection" is open Feb. 11-June 4, 2017. 

Exhibits may be viewed as part of regular tours or with gallery-only admission of $2.
