river runner

weisman art museum

A table runner celebrating the Mississippi River—the feisty current that fuels pieces in the University of Minnesota's WAM collection (like Maya Lin's exquisite "Silver River-Mississippi"). The runner flaunts historic paths from a 1944 survey of the iconic torrent. Born 234 miles upstream, the mighty Mississippi charges by the Frank Gehry-designed WAM as it heads down to the Louisiana bayou. Let the nation's stunner of a river to trickle down your dining table. As across its banks lies the land of the Louisiana Purchase, we thought it only right that these linens were made in the USA. We bet that you'll get a flood of complements at your next dinner party.
