  1. Thanks for the tribute to one of Minnesota’s greatest artists.

    Morrison became one of my favorite artists after the small community college where I was working acquired one of his wood collage sculptures.

    These distinctive collages — particularly ones made from Lake Superior driftwood — are forever etched on my mind for their beauty and simplicity.

    I’m sure many here in the Twin Cities have seen the one at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
