Art Opening: Stream Study

Images and Words of Duluth’s Miller, Tischer, and Amity Creeks
As a city on a hill, Duluth has a seemingly endless number of creeks. In fact, there are 42 named streams that tumble down the hill into Lake Superior, the St. Louis River, and the estuary that connects them. Being so close to these streams is a part of living in Duluth that so many of us treasure.
Years of development in Duluth has impacted these waterways and sections of streams have been channeled or forced underground into culverts, or even used for waste. By understanding the past and becoming aware of our current impact, we can develop a greater appreciation of these beautiful natural resources, and take care of them so we can continue to we can enjoy our creeks and streams for generations.
Through photographs, drawings, and poetry, we hope to spark conversations about the history, the culture, and the ecology – as well as the environmental concerns – about Duluth’s waterways, using Miller Creek, Tischer Creek, and Amity Creek as representatives of Duluth’s watershed.
