Musical Impressions: The Art of George Morrison

TODAY, Sat 1/21 at the Grand Marais Public Library, 3:30pm

Musical Impressions: The Art of George Morrison is touring the Northland through the Arrowhead Library System libraries until 1/21/17 and will be at the Grand Marais Public Library Saturday @ 3:30pm. 

"We listened and laughed as Briand spoke of George Morrison's life, art, and music and were drawn into the intimacy of it all as the conversation continued between guitar and art in this presentation."

Musical Impressions: The Art of George Morrison is a visual sequence of George Morrison's art accompanied by live jazz guitar compositions composed by his son, Briand Morrison. George Morrison (1919-2000) is a Native American Abstract Expressionist artist and is accredited as the founder of Native Modernism.

Briand wrote twelve compositions that accompany the 128 images of George Morrison paintings and drawings. Some of these images have never been shown to the public. The works are from all periods, from the 1940s through his death in 2000.

Pincushion Trails are in Great Condition

New Snowfall: 
0 inches
Last Grooming Date: 
01/17/2017
Base Depth: 
18 inches
Comment: 

The Pincushion Trail System is holding up very well thanks to the fog and temps that are just moderate enough.  Skiing just now is quite good.  We will not be doing any additional grooming while temperatures continue warm.
