Description

Winter Carnival family heirlooms and work by artist Kristina Johnson will be on display in the Otto Bremer Room and Welcome Center. This is an official event of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival.

 Celebrated for over 130 years, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival is one of our nation’s oldest and greatest seasonal traditions. For the artist Kristina Johnson, the Carnival is a way to connect to her family and their strongly rooted ties to Minnesota’s history. Johnson is the great, great, great granddaughter of Jacob Schmidt, founder of the Schmidt Brewery; and the great granddaughter of Edward G. Bremer, a St. Paul banker who was kidnapped by the infamous Barker-Karpis gang in 1934. This exhibition is a unique display of Johnson’s drawings interwoven with heirloom treasures from her family’s personal archive, highlighting the multiple generations of relatives who all grew up enjoying the Winter Carnival.
