Remembering the Wellstones at WAM
In honor of Wellstone Remembrance Day today, we share the exhibition postcard for Twelve Years and Thirteen Days: Remembering Paul and Sheila Wellstone, photographs by Terry Gydeson. The photographic series became a book of the same title:
Senator Paul Wellstone is remembered for his infectious enthusiasm and his ardent devotion to helping all people gain a voice in American politics. In a remarkable collection of more than seventy photographs, Twelve Years and Thirteen Days commemorates the Wellstones’s commitment to social and economic justice and will be an inspiration to those throughout the country who share their values.
To see a selection of the images included in the exhibition, visit Terry Gydesen’s website . The book can be found at the University of Minnesota Press or the UMN Libraries. To learn more about this exhibition and the WAM archives contact the University Archives.
