52. These four paintings, two by Frank Dudley and two by T.C. Steele, represent a total of twelve works of art sent in by the Indiana State Museum. In Brown County, T.C. Steele (1847-1926) was inspired by the area's picturesque scenes. In 1907 Steele and his wife built a large summer home and studio there to accommodate their living and artistic requirements. In 1922 Steele became artist in residence at Indiana University but he always returned to his studio retreat each spring. While Steele is well known for his landscapes, still-lifes and portrait work remained important inspirations throughout his career. Today the 211-acre site is open as a museum and nature preserve. The site offers numerous seasonal activities and events.

53. The Tweed Museum of Art is located on the campus of the University of Minnesota, Duluth. The Museum's history is unusual for the "Tweed Art Gallery" first opened to the public in 1950. The "gallery" was actually in the home of George Peter Tweed who collected American and European art. After Mr. Tweed's death, his wife donated the art collection to the University of Minnesota. With funds from the family and Foundation, an on-campus museum was built and later expanded upon. Today the museum has a large collection of over 4,000 works of art from the 15th Century to the present. The two lower James Brooks (1906-1992) paintings are wonderful examples of Post-Depression regional painting. The Canadian Native Ojibwe painter, Norval Morrisseau (1932-) , painted the two bottom images. The Canadian artist was the Founder of the Woodland school also known as Legend or Medicine painting.
