New Mill City Museum Exhibit on the Confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers

Luke Erickson explores these two important rivers through his landscape photography

The exhibit "Confluence: Geography, History & Culture at the Intersection of the Mississippi & Minnesota Rivers" examines the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers through the lens of photographer Luke Erickson.

Erickson’s black-and-white landscape photography showcases images along the rivers from Pike Island to bridges to nature shots. Through his work, Erickson explores the rivers’ historical, economic and social importance and reflects on topics like the exploitation of natural resources and the mythology of the American West.

Mill City Museum will celebrate the exhibit’s opening with a public reception on Wednesday, May 10 from 6pm-8pm. Erickson will give a gallery talk about his work at 7 p.m. followed by a Q&A session. A cash bar will be available for purchase at the reception. 

“Confluence: Geography, History & Culture at the Intersection of the Mississippi & Minnesota Rivers” is located in the museum’s Mill Commons, and is free and open to the public during regular museum hours. It will be on view May 10 - September 24, 2017

Erickson’s work is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
