Wells Fargo celebrates the gift of the Norwest Modernism Collection to The Minneapolis Institute of Arts with this commemorative screen saver, which highlights the collection. The screen saver displays 45 Modernist objects and animated graphics selected from the museum's Modernism Web site.

The gift of Norwest Bank's Modernism collection in 1998 catapulted the Institute's design holdings into a position of worldwide prominence. Modernism Online provides a wealth of information on this exciting collection and covers the six major movements represented: Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Wiener Werkstätte, de Stijl, Bauhaus and Art Deco.

The term Modernism commonly applies to those forward-looking architects, designers and artisans who, from the 1880s on, forged a new and diverse vocabulary principally to escape Historicism, the tyranny of previous historical styles.
