May 10, 2017, Wednesday - "Confluence: Geography, History & Culture at the Intersection of the Mississippi & Minnesota Rivers" Exhibit Opening at Mill City Museum
Times: 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Mill City Museum, 704 2nd Street South
A public reception will open a new exhibit featuring photographs by Luke Erickson, with remarks at 7 pm. The photographs highlight the historical, economic and social importance of two rivers, the Mississippi and Minnesota, and serves as a call to observe, preserve and protect our watersheds. These photographs are also an argument about the importance of landscape photography and a meditation on the mythology of the American West, the effects of suburban expansion, the American Dream and the exploitation of natural resources.
A cash bar will be available at the opening reception. This exhibit will be located in the museum's central Mill Commons, and is free and open to the public during regular museum hours through Sept. 24, 2017.
Erickson's work is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
