“One Place, Many Voices” Exhibition on Bohemian Flats to Open April 30

April 27, 2015Patrick NunnallyProgram & AnnouncementsComments Off on “One Place, Many Voices” Exhibition on Bohemian Flats to Open April 30

For some time now, Rachel Hines has been writing blog posts about Bohemian Flats and the other “living with water” communities along the Mississippi in the Twin Cities.  An exhibition on some of the many facets of the Flats will open this Thursday evening with a program at Mill City Museum.

Dr. Scott Anfinson, the Minnesota State Archaeologist, will give a talk about archaeological investigations in the Minneapolis Central Riverfront, including Bohemian Flats, the Hennepin Avenue Bridge, and the Federal Reserve Bank.  The program is 6-8, Thursday April 30.  Admission to the program is free, but does not include admission to the full museum.  More information is available here.

The exhibit is funded in part by the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
