'Frederick' - Minnesota River Arts Plein Air

Frederick was a young steer who was tied up outside one of the houses at The Landing for
education day. He wasn't a very cooperative model as he kept moving in all directions. So this amounts to a very quick study of him before the park was filled with large groups of kids. 

Each group was guided through the park and taught what day to day life was like in the mid to late 1800s. The best comment I heard from one of these kids was "they sure painted a lot back then!" I guess he assumed all of the painters were part of this museum!
