Jamie Schell, a Winona artist and sculptor, was featured on Art Hounds, a Minnesota Public radio podcast. Each week three people from the Minnesota arts community talk about a performance, opening, or event they’re excited to see and think others should check out.
Schell talked about the Minnesota Marine Art Museum’s current photography exhibit by Tony Duran who is a Winona native. Schell is also the manager of the Prairie Island campground and often directs guests at the campground to visit the museum.
“Tony Duran is a Winona native who has forged a career photographing celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone and Beyoncé. The exhibit includes those portraits and dozens of others. “I started thinking of Tony as an old-time mariner,” Schell said, reflecting on the exhibit’s landing at the Marine Art Museum. “They would go out into the world, see all these amazing, unbelievable things, then come home and probably have a hard time actually explaining them to folks.”
