The New Airport Terminal is Unveiled

Photos and text by H. Brian Rauvola

The brand new Duluth Airport terminal had it doors open to the public for the first time last weekend. This event allowed people to get back into the areas only designated for employees and luggage, as well as show off its shiny, new facade and amenities. I was fortunate enough to have been able to catch Tuskeegee Airman Joe Gomer with his recently unveiled bronze statue commemorating his service in WWII (the movie "Red Tails" was based on these fine pilots.) A great added bonus!

Adam Swanson - Local Artist

Photos and text by Nate Lindstrom

Painter Adam Swanson has an affinity for penguins, robots, old bicycles and wind turbines. With colors and a painting style as fantastic as the subjects themselves, his work is easily recognizable and becoming extremely popular.  Adam works out of his home studio, but his work can be seen in several galleries in Duluth, and currently as an exhibit showing at the Lake Avenue Cafe in Canal Park.

"In my work I deconstruct the ideas that are part of our childhood and adult culture. My work also addresses the future, fragility of the human presence, perseverance of nature and underlying threads of danger that underpin societies."
