Bus Tour to MIA Exhibit: Martin Luther, Art and the Reformation

  • Minneapolis Institute of Art 2400 3rd Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55404 United States (map)

This exhibition examines Luther’s life and influence from an artist’s perspective, featuring over 100 objects that have never before been displayed on American soil. The exhibits paint a picture of the life and work of Luther and the events of the Reformation within the context of the 16th century. Luther's impact on the art of the time is made visible through an array of rarely seen masterpieces from the heart of Germany, including extraordinary paintings, massive sculptures, and tiny treasures of silver and gold. Get an intimate look at Luther’s life through a remarkable assembly of his personal possessions accompanied by recent archaeological discoveries found in his childhood and adult homes. This exhibition will be the first time these items are presented to a large audience outside of Germany.
