Through this transparent collage, the viewer gazes across fields of wheat like a sweep of tea-stained time. Crumbling limestone fortified by glass and steel, Mill City Museum embodies the space between then and now. In this place: the birth of a city, the rise and fall of industry, fortunes made, lives lost. A trace of flour in these stones. Daily bread. Time passes, the river flows, the wheat bends in the breeze.
