Minneapolis Institute of Arts showcases art rescued by 'Monuments Men'

MINNEAPOLIS - The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is capitalizing on the upcoming release of a movie about efforts to protect valuable art objects from Adolf Hitler.

The museum is displaying nine pieces associated with the real-life effort portrayed in "The Monuments Men."

Starring and directed by George Clooney, "The Monuments Men" opens in theatres nationally Friday. It depicts the efforts of academics and museum curators who raced against time to discover where Hitler and his minions had stashed stolen artworks during World War II.

Some of the recovered art found its way to the Minneapolis museum.

Erika Holmquist-Wall, the MIA's assistant curator of paintings, tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/1eC9nho ) it's great to see the story of the salvaged art being told.
