Project Description

Exhibition dates: March 20, 2019 – May 31, 2019

Robert Fischer lived near Minnehaha Falls and sold souvenirs at a pavilion outside the park between 1891 and 1902. His intricate and beautiful designs were made by filling glass containers with naturally colored sands found in the park. See an assortment of his completed works, unfinished work, sand specimens, and tools of the trade. A series of his small vials have been made into a limited-edition line of jewelry sold only at the Museum Shop.
