In the midst of so much pain and injustice, it’s good to remember the good things that have come out of Minnesota — like Elof Wedin and Minnowpedia. I don’t know if MNOpedia is pronounced Minnow-pedia, but if it’s not, it should be. So cute. And, one could argue that Wedin came out of Sweden as he was 18 when he immigrated to the US, but as we are a country of immigrants (whether you like it or not), I say he was a Minnesotan; and besides, his prefrontal cortex wasn’t even fully developed when he moved to Minnesota.
You can see examples of Wedin’s work on the websites for the Smithsonian American Art Museum,
Wedin created two post office murals: Street Scene (Litchfield, Minnesota) and Return from the Fields (Mobridge, South Dakota).
