OPEIU Members at Minneapolis Institute of Art Make the Museum Great

We Interviewed three OPEIU Members at the MIA

“How am I supposed to pick my favorite art piece? They’re all like my children!” As we wind along the halls of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, we’re surrounded by diverse and beautiful works of art from some of the biggest artists and some lesser known ones as well. OPEIU Local 12 members and MIA employees Leslie Ory Lewellen, Joe Doherty, and Debra Hegstrom navigate with ease through the second floor. As we walk, they brag with huge smiles on their faces about how the collection at the MIA is over 90,000 pieces and talk about all the exciting exhibits to come. Union Members at the MIA keep the museum running smoothly by doing every kind of work at the museum one could conceive.
