"Aren't they adorable?" Photo display at the Cokato Museum

The Cokato Museum is pleased to announce the opening on Dec. 12 of its most recent temporary exhibit, Aren't They Adorable. This display features nearly thirty images of young children taken from recently-scanned glass plate negatives from the Gust Akerlund Photo Studio Collection. The images that form the display are taken from glass plate negatives which were recently scanned as a part of a grant-funded project for the museum. The Grants-In-Aid program of the Minnesota Historical Society and the Museums for America program from the federal Institute for Museum Studies are underwriting the scanning and digitization of the negatives. Aren't They Adorable is scheduled to run though mid-April 2009. For more information, please contact the museum at (320) 286-2427, or visit our Web site: www.cokato.mn.us/cmhs/. The Cokato Museum is a cooperative effort of the city of Cokato and the Cokato Historical Society.
