BCHS features ‘Art of Remembering, Images of the U. S. Dakota War of 1862’

NEW ULM — The Brown County Historical Society presents the “Art of Remembering, Images of the U. S. Dakota War of 1862.” This three-part series examines artistic forms of interpreting the past. The program can be viewed on the BCHS website.

The three segments include examination of the Chief Sleepy Eye statue, the Milford Monument and the “The Defense of New Ulm” painting. This program was produced for the 2012 commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the U.S. Dakota War of 1862.

This three-part series is available on the BCHS website, browncountyhistorymn.org. This program was made possible by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Legacy program with a grant from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council.
