A decision by a popular Minnesota art museum to rebrand itself has drawn a mixed reaction.  

The Minneapolis Institute of Art  announced last week it now wants to be called "Mia," instead of its old acronym M-I-A.  

The organization is also using the word "Art" in its name instead of "Arts."   

MPR News' Phil Picardi spoke with Kaywin Feldman, the museum's director and president, about the changes.
