The Tweed Museum at the University of Minnesota Duluth displays a rich collection of art made primarily by the Great Lakes Ojibwe and Eastern Woodlands people.


The Richard E. and Dorothy Rawlings Nelson Collection of American Indian Art at the Tweed Museum reflects the visual culture of the Anishinaabe people and provides historical context for the museum's expanding collection of contemporary American Indian works.

The Potlatch Collection of Royal Canadian Mounted Police Illustrations


Northwest Paper of Cloquet, Minnesota, later known as Potlatch Paper, used the red-coated “Mountie” as an advertising symbol for its fine printing papers. Between 1931-1970, 16 artists produced over 400 images. Illustrations including classic western adventure, solemn wwii messages, and 1960s tv-land represent the Royal Canadian Mounted Police R.C.M.P. officer, steadfastly discharging his varied duties against the backdrop of the Canadian wilderness.
