Don Sundeen, State Schooler memories in paint
Don Sundeen, an Owatonna State Schooler, has painted his recollections of his time at the school. He is also looking forward to returning to walk the grounds and recall old memories.
“I grew up in the Owatonna State School in the 1940's and 1950's. This art exhibit shows what it was like when you grew up like me, without parents in a place for kids with disabilities. I was a ward of St. Louis County. I was shy and kept to myself. I feel lucky because I felt safe there, but other people had bad experiences in many different institutions."
