Minnesota Marine Art Museum Expansion
The Slaggie Family Foundation in Winona is giving $1,100,000 to the Minnesota Marine Art Museum for a gallery expansion.
Museum Executive Director, Andy Maus, says the much needed expansion will be named the Stephen and Barbara Slaggie Family Gallery and will be open this fall.
The expansion plan will add about 2,500 square feet of exhibition space for the Museum's growing collections.
Maus says the extra room is also needed due to the increase in large groups, including students, that come for museum tours.
