Recently, the Minnesota Digital Library (MDL) published a new exhibit on our website titled “Quotable Minnesota.” This exhibit features several quotes from Minnesota’s artists, authors, musicians, leaders, and more. Their inspiring words are illustrated by some of our favorite images from MDL collections.

MDL staff created this digital exhibit to share some of the voices of the people of Minnesota, give a sense for what it means to live here, and show how much we have in common. Although we come from differing circumstances and backgrounds, we all share certain universal desires related to a sense of home, community, and identity, illustrated in the collected quotes. The intent was to provide an expanded perspective on Minnesota and an opportunity to look at the state, its people, and its history in a new way.

MDL now has six online exhibits on our Exhibits project page. These include “Farm to Table,” a 3-part series on Minnesota’s immigrants, and a guide to History Day resources for students and teachers. Explore them all today!
