Although the University of Minnesota Duluth didn’t officially make its appearance until 1947, plans to make a strong college in the Duluth area started in the 1800s. The state legislature made blueprints and gathered supplies to build a teaching school for women and in 1895 they announced the starting of the Duluth Normal School. In 1896, the City of Duluth donated six acres of land to serve as a foundation for the Duluth Normal School, and the state legislature donated an additional $5,000 to build the school. The main building of the Duluth Normal School cost a total of $75,000 but these funds were not available until 1900. In February of 1901, a large fire caused extensive damage to the school leaving only a couple of walls and doorways standing. Although money had been lost in the creation of the Duluth Normal School, the legislature decided to rebuild.
After the school had been rebuilt, many new additions were made, including new faculty and a new president. In April of 1901, Eugene W. Bohannon was appointed president of the Duluth Normal School. In 1902, the school opened for business. Women came to the school to be trained for a highly sought-after degree in education. By 1903, seven women received their diplomas from Duluth Normal School. In 1906, the first ladies dormitories were established and opened, costing the school around $35,000 to build. Living on campus was much cheaper and much easier for everyone. Throughout the next few years, more dormitories, two new wings, and an auditorium were added to the school. By the time these additions were finished, tuition was increased and requirements, such as having a high school diploma, were put in place in order to apply to the school.
In 1921, the Duluth Normal School was renamed to the Duluth State Teachers College, also known as DSTC. Shortly after the renaming, bachelor’s degrees and four-year degree programs were added to the school. In 1929 men began to come to the DSTC, and along with them, the first sports teams including hockey, football, and basketball. All of these generated money for the school, and attracted many more students to the school over the years. By 1937, people were fighting to make DSTC a Minnesota branch college to increase funding and the overall reputation of the school. It was not until 1947 the DSTC became part of the Minnesota University system and was again renamed, this time to the University of Minnesota Duluth, or UMD.
Today, the UMD campus consists of more than 50 buildings on 244 acres (98. 7 hectares) overlooking Lake Superior. Lake Superior is the largest of the five Great Lakes of North America. Most UMD buildings are connected by concourses or hallways. UMD is also home to the Tweed Museum of Art, the Marshall W. The Tweed Museum of Art is a Museum located on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth, in Duluth Minnesota. Alworth Planetarium, Weber Music Hall, and the Marshall Performing Arts Center. Other UMD facilities include the Research and Field Studies Center, Glensheen Historic Estate, the Lower Campus, Minnesota Sea Grant, the Large Lakes Observatory, and the Natural Resources Research Institute. The Glensheen Historic Estate is a historic mansion on Lake Superior owned by the University of Minnesota Duluth.
UMD has experienced a revamping of student amenities and subsidized research facilities over the past seven years, beginning in 2000 with the completion of a new library. A library is a collection of information sources resources and services and the structure in which it is housed it is organized for use and maintained by a public body an institution Additional buildings built since 2000 include the Weber Music Hall, Swenson Science Building, Sports and Health Center addition, and the new Labovitz School of Business. With the construction of these new buildings comes a plethora of new art on campus. All new public building projects in Minnesota must comply with the state's “One Percent for Art” law, passed by the State Legislature in 1984, which mandates that all such projects in Minnesota costing over $500,000 must devote at least 1% of their total construction budget towards incorporating public art into these building's public spaces. The Minnesota Legislature is the legislative branch of government in the U The term public art properly refers to works of Art in any media that has been planned and executed with the specific intention of being sited A little over 1% of the library's $28 million construction costs went toward the purchase and installation of a glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly that hangs from the ceiling of the two-story library lobby. Dale Patrick Chihuly (b September 20, 1941 in Tacoma Washington, U 2005 saw the completion of the Swenson Science Building, a new student dining facility and a revamped UMD themed gift shop as well as the replacement of the famed coffee cart with the Northern Shores Coffee Shop.

The Ojibwa or Chippewa (also Ojibwe, Ojibway, Chippeway) is the largest group of Native Americans - First Nations The sculpture was designed by John David Mooney and is called "Wild Ricing Moon," and represents the traditional wild rice harvest.
