Dear Redhead: The Art & Artistry of Wes Sod Exhibit Opening

We are pleased to announce that our newest temporary exhibit officially opens Wednesday, January 24, at the Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum.

Dear Redhead: The Art & Artistry of Wes Sod tells the story of one of Morrison County’s most under-appreciated talents.

Born in St. Paul, Wes moved with his family to the area in 1930 at the age of four. Over the next almost six decades, he used his gifts to create an impressive body of work, ranging from pencil sketches to water-colors, hand-made holiday greeting cards to commissioned portraits.

Wes relocated to California with his wife, Colleen (Doucette) in 1988, and later to Aurora, Colorado, where he passed away in 2008.

While many area residents may not immediately recognize his name, his legacy lives on in the countless pieces that adorn private homes, businesses, and public buildings.

Dear Redhead will be on display at the Weyerhaeuser Museum through Labor Day weekend 2024.
