The St. Louis County Historical Society is hosting a free public reception on April 27th, 2018 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm to celebrate the opening of its newly redesigned Lake Superior Ojibwe Gallery. The event will be held in the Great Hall, St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota.
This newly re-designed gallery will showcase never before seen artifacts reflecting Ojibwe history and culture. New text will discuss periods of European contact as well as showcase contemporary lifestyle and causes. The gallery will also feature charcoal portraits and oil paintings by the artist Eastman Johnson who spent time with the Ojibwe in the 1850s.
This free public reception will include appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages. The Oshkii Giizhik Singers will start off the event as well as close the event. Additional programming will be announced.
This redesign project was completed with the cooperation of the St. Louis County Historical Society’s American Indian Advisory Committee—a group made of tribal appointed leaders and elders.
