New Library Lobby Exhibit: Icons of Minnesota

Filed under: What's New — Lori Williamson @ 10:29 am

Minnesota is many things to many people. We love our outdoors, our sports and cultural life, and our symbols. How do we define and identify ourselves? Who are we, in object form?

Shown in this small exhibit are some examples of things which have become iconic and represent Minnesota in popular culture. From official symbols such as the state flower and seal to our sporting personas to why we are called the Gopher state, see some of the basis for the stories we tell ourselves here.

This exhibit is on view during Library open hours through August 30, 2014.
