MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Weisman Art Museum reopens to the public Sunday afternoon after being closed for a year for a $14-million remodeling project.

The modern art museum with the rippling metal walls on the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota now features more skylights and twice as much gallery space as before.

The festivities run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday and will events for the kids, lessons in screen printing, dancers, yoga classes in the galleries and a concert by Rogue Valley. Admission is free.
