DEDICATION OF THE JOHN IDSTROM BRONZE COLLECTION

Saturday, June 8, 4-7 PM

The John Idstrom family has gifted a collection of his North American Big Game series of bronzes to the Arts Center. You are invited to the dedication of the bronzes. Wildlife artist and conservationist Jim Killen and John’s son, John, will speak briefly at the dedication. John was a wildlife biologist and artist who painted and worked in bronze. Using the lost wax process, he did a series of North American Big Game. Mr. Idstrom was a graduate of St. Olaf College with a degree in biology and was a wildlife biologist. He worked many years researching big game and improving wetlands at the Department of Natural Resources.

The luncheon was fabulous, the scene was exquisite, and songs sung by the Burkes brought much joy to our day. Gar from Spare Time did an awesome job with the cuisine. Distinguished fellows with flare served 90 guests. Thank you, Friends.
