Guin Art Collection

The Guin Library has an extensive art collection purchased through gifts. The building was funded by federal grants rather than state monies so there was no mandates 1% for Art in the budget. Nevertheless, generous supporters raised funds for the library furnishings and equipment with funds left over for art. Pieces have been purchased over the years using these funds. One of the first purchased was Frank Boyden's marvelous ceramic platter with the chinook salmon head in the Library's entry.  Two pieces moved with the Library from its location in the HMSC Education Building; these are Drake Deknatel's and Nelson Sandgren's oil paintings. Other pieces have been donated over the years inlcuding the installation created and donated by Jackie Niemi in the Seminar Room hallway.
