Behold! The Weisman Art Museum!
Okay, okay. Technically this museum is in Minneapolis. (Forgive me Voix?) But I mean, come on! That gorgeous shot deserves to be posted. Here's a description from the museum website.
Housed in a striking stainless steel and brick building designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Weisman Art Museum offers an educational and friendly museum experience. The museum's collection features early 20th century American artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Marsden Hartley, as well as a diverse selection of contemporary art. A teaching museum for the University of Minnesota and the community, the Weisman provides a fresh, engaging arts experience through an array of programs and a changing schedule of exhibitions.

Charles Schultz, the creator of the cartoon Peanuts, was from St. Paul. For several years in a row, Peanuts characters were purchased and adopted by a variety of groups and businesses. The statues were decorated and then put on display around the city. The practice was eventually discontinued, but you can still find statutes dotting the city.

The sister store of Cheapo Discs is Applause! Located directly across Snelling Avenue from Cheapo, Applause carries classical, bossa nova, jazz, blues and a variety of international artists. The sales people are knowledgable and friendly. Shawn picked up Herb Alberts Whipped Cream & Other Delights; Re-wipped and we are enjoying it thoroughly.
