On top of one of the finest collections of art in the region, featuring the likes of Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet and Georgia O’Keeffe, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) in Winona, MN, offers unique, temporary exhibitions all based around the theme of “great art inspired by water.” Opening August 23, 2019 and running through January 5, 2020 is Seth Casteel: Underwater Dogs, an exciting exhibition of photography featuring man’s best friend. 

Seth Casteel is an American photographer best known for his beloved images of dogs underwater. His early images of dogs went viral and led to his book Underwater Dogs, which became a New York Times Bestseller and the best selling photography book of 2012. This will be the first museum exhibition of his popular images. 

MMAM’s monthly Mississippi Sippin’, a happy hour held every Tuesday from 4:30-6:30 through September on the museum’s riverfront featuring beer, wine and food, will be rebranded “Mississippi Sippin (and Slurpin’)” during the exhibition. The August 27, September 3, 10, 17 and 24 events will be dog friendly, the museum encourages participants to bring their dogs and enjoy the riverfront. While the humans sip a beverage, the four legged friends can slurp water and enjoy a treat..
