Step into this chronicle of the art, life and impact of famed Minnesota artist George Morrison, based on the award-winning book “Modern Spirit” and co-produced with the Friends of the St. Paul Library.

Morrison’s artwork rarely includes overt references to his Ojibwe heritage. Therefore, he is not defined solely as an Native American artist. Resistant to being labeled, he described himself as a painter who happened to be Native. At the same time, Morrison’s prolific art often reflects a respectful connection to Ojibwe culture.
