Community exhibition at MMAM in Winona
A special exhibition is coming to the Minnesota Marine Art Museum thanks to the generosity of Merchants National Bank and others. The exhibition, simply titled Currency, will be on display in the MMAM’s Slaggie Family Hallway Gallery from January 6 to April 9, 2015.
This exhibition is a part of the museum’s Community Exhibitions program, which often displays objects relating to community life in the Winona region. In the exhibition will be early currency, contraband gold certificates, obsolete currency, error notes and other rare currency. Pictured is a certificate featuring William Windom, who lived in Winona in 1855, represented Minnesota’s First Congressional District between 1859 and 1869, and is the namesake of Winona’s Windom Park.
There is always something new to experience at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum, a nonprofit art museum and educational center supported by over 1,000 members, donors, granters and sponsors. It is located at 800 Riverview Drive in Winona and is surrounded by acres of native prairie gardens along the Mississippi River. Gallery and MMAM Store hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information about the museum is available at www.mmam.org.
