Designed by Frank Gehry, the Weisman (a.k.a. ”Baby Bilbao”) is a steel-clad collection of curves and angles reflecting everything around it, including the nearby Mississippi River. Inside is a modern American art collection primarily focusing on the first half of the 20th century, including a portrait of founder Frederick Weisman by Andy Warhol.
