We know that Minnesotans love art — Art-A-Whirl is the largest open studios in the country, the State Fair Fine Art Show is actually resume-worthy, and art centers are scattered throughout our landscape. Last week I was in Aitken at the Jaques Art Center and saw original work by the center’s namesake, Francis Lee Jaques, one of Minnesota’s finest painter/naturalists who also created the Bell Museum’s stunning dioramas. Art and nature go hand in hand in Minnesota.
