Snow Piles of the Upper Mississippi Exhibition Opening

Snow Piles of the Upper Mississippi is a photography and public art project focusing on the most ubiquitous, temporary, and under-appreciated winter sculptures. Through documenting hundreds of snow piles in Winona during the last five years, Matthew Fluharty has created a playful and strangely illuminating look into how everyday life (and the landscape of Winona) is shaped through the work and creativity of its citizens. This exhibit will also feature photographs from the Winona County History Museum’s archive that illustrate the cultural and historical contours of winters past in Winona.

All proceeds from the sale of the Snow Piles photographs support intercultural exchange between Prairie Island Indian Community and the Winona region, in partnership with the Winona County Historical Society and Art of the Rural.The exhibition is on view through March 9, 2024.
