Shutterbug Exhibition Opens at Minnesota Marine Art Museum in January 2020

Winona’s Minnesota Marine Art Museum will be opening a fantastic new photography exhibition on January 10th, 2020. 

Minnesota-born David Tewes was a soldier in the U.S. Army during World War II with a penchant for photography. After Tewes’ death in 1991, his family discovered a large collection of his Kodachrome photographic slides taken between 1944 and 1955. These never-before-seen images offer a unique view of post-war America at work and at play. Photographs reproduced from these slides include Tewes’ deployment to Alaska during the war, river and lake scenes around his hometown of Hutchinson, Minneapolis, and St. Paul, and snapshots from his trips to the coasts of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Mexico, New York, and more.

About the Minnesota Marine Art Museum

Built on the pastoral shore of the Mississippi River and surrounded by swaying native prairie plantings, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum boasts a collection of fine art that rivals even the most cosmopolitan cities.

Picasso, Van Gogh, Renoir, Matisse and the work of scores of other painting masters hang in the treasured galleries here, each depicting a scene that celebrates navigable waterways. Local folk art and visiting internationally-acclaimed shows, as well as a sunny terrace for whiling away some time, round out this museum’s much-celebrated offerings.

The museum is open 10 am to 5 pm Tuesdays through Sundays. The museum is closed on Mondays and major holidays.
