Multi Media Art at the Library by local artists

Jamestown artists sometimes worked with materials that are not normally found in an artist’s studio. Orville Minkler created house-shaped coin banks from tin cans. Connie Armbrust painted a picture of the windmill on a discarded shingle from the windmill. See these and other unique works in the new exhibit in the Jamestown Philomenean Library.
