gmd anniversary




GMD was selected to be part of a profile tour of academic museums that

Philadelphia-based CultureSpots conducted this fall with support from the

Association of Academic Museums and Galleries (AAMG). GMD was the only

academic museum to be featured from the Twin Cities. The goal of this tour

and series of videos was to highlight the impact academic museums have

as vibrant centers of learning and community dialogue and what makes

a design museum unique.
