The St. Louis County Historical Society is seeking volunteer gallery attendants for its Lake Superior Ojibwe Gallery. This is a great opportunity for lovers of art, history, and culture. The Ojibwe Gallery features the work of nationally recognized 19th century painter Eastman Johnson, whose paintings and drawings, notable for their realism and attention to detail, are on display. The Society’s collection includes 37 works produced by Johnson during his two year stay in the areas now known as Duluth, Superior, and Grand Portage.
An equally important component of the Gallery is the selection of American Indian, primarily Ojibwe, artifacts from the Society’s collection that lend insight into Ojibwe culture. Training will orient volunteers to the art, history and culture aspects of this exhibit, as well as to the Society’s partnerships with the tribal entities of the region, which include Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Bois Forte Band of Chippewa and Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
If interested, you can pick up an application at the Society’s administrative offices, from the Visitors Service Desk (3rd floor entrance), or online. Any additional questions or concerns should be directed to Collections Manager and Exhibits Curator, Samantha M. Tubbs.
The Ojibwe Gallery is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm every day of the week.
Volunteers are needed for all days.
