Art coming to Ely

Two exhibits from the St. Louis County Historical Society are coming to the Vermilion Community College in Ely on Friday.

“Old Country Memories: The Art of Albin Zaverl” and “Father Baraga: Shared Horizons” will be featured as part of the college’s cultural heritage event celebrating Slovenian culture.

“Father Baraga” contains a short biography of the missionary Father Frederic Baraga, who lived in Northeastern Minnesota during the late Lake Superior fur-trade era in the mid-1800s. He immersed himself in the Ojibwe culture.

The event is free and open to the public. Call (715) 292-1960 for more information.
