The Hillstrom Museum is the art museum of Gustavus Adolphus College, but the collection is worthy of admiration well beyond campus. By concentrating on American artists, especially such early-20th-century talents as Grant Wood, John Sloan, George Bellows and Peggy Bacon, Hillstrom director Don Myers has refined and expanded the excellent collection of the museum’s benefactor Richard L. Hillstrom. The small exhibition space has showcased everything from surrealist prints to contemporary abstraction and paintings rooted in the school’s Swedish heritage. For a little college on the prairie, the Hillstrom is a gem. 800 West College Av., St. Peter; 1-507-933-7200;
