Another awesome current exhibit at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum! Nathan Benn served on the National Geographic Society photographic staff from 1972 into 1991. On exhibit are Benn's selection of images from this period capturing the physical, cultural, social, and aesthetic spirit of the Mississippi River. His images explore issues of class, race, and social change, which reflect both the profound differences and similarities to life in America today. This exhibition is part of the museum's on-going Mississippi River Exhibition Series that explores a range of artists' expressions inspired by the River.
