WHAT TO SEE AT THE MUSEUM


EXHIBITS

The Vasa and Other Wood Carvings by Clayton Johnson

Clayton Johnson is a native of Wrenshall now living in southern Minnesota. His signature work, a scale replica of the 17th century Swedish ship Vasa, has been exhibited at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter and at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. It has been called the most accurate replica ever made by the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. The subject matter of his other wood carvings is wide ranging, often reflecting a Nordic artisan heritage. The exhibit, which opened on October 12, has been made possible by a grant to CCHS from United Way of Carlton County.
