What is your favorite artwork or exhibition at the Museum?
The Hudson River School paintings are some of my favorites. They bring back fond memories of studying Thomas Cole and the others in High School.
What do you tell visitors to Winona about the MMAM?
I often carry passes to the Museum with me. When I meet someone new to town or a visitor, I'll ask them if they have been to the MMAM. If they haven't, I'll tell them about the different collections and exhibitions and hand them a pass. They are always thrilled to learn what a gem it is!

Why do you support the MMAM?
As a former resident of Washington, DC, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum feels like walking into our own piece of the Smithsonian Institution. I choose to support the MMAM, however, for its educational and uplifting mission!
