Eyes of Mendota
Eyes of Mendota welcomes some of our family into theirs. With more than 20 years of experience, optician Jason Engleman brings his business to a new location. His playful, quick-witted humor is certain to entertain, while his expertise will ensure a perfect experience for the client.
“I am doing what I love—the fashion, the technology,” Engleman, whose passion is unmistakable, beams.
The company specializes in high-end eyewear, carrying a large selection of brands—some big names and some unique models that are sure to set the wearer apart.
“We don’t want to be LensCrafters,” Engleman explains. “We don’t want to be ‘something for everybody.’ We’d rather be ‘everything for somebody.’”
And that somebody is most certainly you. With a fairy’s touch and a master’s skill, Engleman is sure to find the perfect pair for your face.
Eyes of Mendota is just minutes from the Cities. Stop by and say hello to Engleman during the day on Tuesdays and on Wednesday mornings.

MIA’s New Assistant Director
The Minneapolis Institute of the Arts (MIA) has brought in Leann Standish as its new Assistant Director for Institutional Advancement. With more than a decade of experience, she joins President and Director Kaywin Feldman with hopes of continuing the growth of and preserving the quality of the museum’s collections.
MIA houses an incredible mix of both classical and modern art in many different forms, including sculpture, photography, and textiles, as well as paintings by Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse. The diverse collection, which represents more than 5,000 years of history, draws from nearly every corner of the globe.
Standish joins the MIA team after the museum’s recent reorganization. With her invaluable experience in marketing and artistic development, she will be a worthy addition to the already extraordinary staff.
