Weisman Art Museum

“WAM@20 Choice” (through Jan. 5): To celebrate the 20th anniversary of its jazzy Frank Gehry-designed Cubistic building overlooking the Mississippi River, the Weisman is showcasing paintings, photos, ceramics and other art acquired in each of the past 20 years. The stylish displays highlight the smallest, oldest and longest acquisition for each year, plus the favorite pieces chosen by the museum’s tour guides and by its director. Their eclectic picks range from an Annie Leibovitz photo of Bruce Springsteen to beautiful drawings, pottery and paintings.
