Minneapolis Institute of Art

Mrs. Korrigan arranged for us to see some outstanding pieces of art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.  The pieces we observed and learned about from the docent connected with what the students were studying and creating in her classroom.  The docent was nice enough to stop at my favorite piece as well. 
It was created by the MN artist George Morrison.  The docent told us he liked to "paint with wood." This piece was created with different pieces of wood that he found in northern MN, on the shores of Lake Superior, as well as pieces friends found and sent to him. He fit them together without altering any of them with Elmer's Glue!  There is a signature horizon line on this piece, as on other creations he has done.
