Art on Display: Paintings by Michael Melman: May-June, open during library hours. “The subject of my paintings are the remains of Minnesota’s pre-WWII Industrial Era landscape. When I moved to Minnesota in 1972, I became fascinated by the spaciousness of the Midwest, the drama and beauty of the weather, and the built environment from that bygone era. I use my photos, along with historic photos, sketches, memory, and my imagination to create my images,” Michael Melman.
