Don McKinney Art Exhibit

The Belle Plaine Historical Society is excited to host the Don McKinney art exhibit on November 26th from 4pm until 8pm.  Don’s pottery was his love and it has not been on display as an exhibit before.  Many thanks to Steve Beck for organizing this.   Don taught in Belle Plaine for over 40 years.  Here is what Steve Beck wrote about him.

“Don “Chuck” McKinney’s career is difficult to label in any traditional sense.  He served as an educator for 5 decades, touching the lives of countless students.  McKinney taught art, computer design, and industrial arts.  He coached wrestling, track, swimming, he even coached rodeo and cheerleading briefly.  His impact in the local community is profound.  We invite you to join us in honoring Don McKinney and his life’s work.

The Art exhibit is titled:  Beauty in the Flaws  Pottery and People: a Don McKinney retrospective.  This will take place at the museum on November 26th from 4pm until 8pm.  So get your shopping done early and come to the museum.  There will be holiday treats and good cheer.

This is an open event and everyone is welcome.  Please share this event and feel free to invite anyone.
