Northern Great Lakes

Second Floor Gallery
Inspired By Nature: Art Through The Eyes of Master Gardeners
Twelve Chequamegon Bay Master Gardeners exhibit their artwork inspired by a variety of gardening subjects. The artists share insights as to what the natural world means to them and how they have translated that meaning into their art.  The art pieces include ceramics, quilts, paintings, prints, photographs, sculpture, and wood carvings.  The exhibit will be at the Visitor Center until May 30, at which time it will go to Washburn Cultural Center.

Celebrate the History and Heritage of Lake Superior
Time: Allow 30 minutes for exploration

Step back in time! Listen to spirited songs of voyageurs singing as they paddle their fur laden, 35-foot birch bark canoe across Lake Superior. Peek inside an 18th century fur trade post. Feel the pulsating rumble of an explosion in a deep-shaft iron mine. Our unique displays stage an overview of human cultures interacting with the land and natural resources of the Northern Great Lakes region, from the Ice Age to the present.
