Collecting pieces of Minnesota's past for the future


The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.

Our last featured African-American photographer this week created one of our newest acquisitions.
Bobby Rodgers, an exciting contemporary photographer based in Minneapolis, took these two portraits as part of the “Catch a Fade” project in 2018.
