Special Lectures and Performances

The Minnesota History Center offers special lectures and performances throughout the year that are not part of our regular series.


WW1 America Mural Project: Meet the Artist
See dates on our calendar
Watch as Minnesota artist David Geister paints a 30-foot mural in front of visitors during the run of the WW1 America exhibit. The mural depicts 100 key individuals who have influenced the making of post-WW1 America. In addition to seeing the artist at work, visitors can meet Geister, discuss the work and contribute ideas that will inform how Geister completes the mural. 
This program is made possible by the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
