According to Tina Didreckson, coordinator of the event for the Stevens County Historical Society, â�?�?This is the second year of our Horizontal Grandeur show. We had sixty-four entries from eight states and British Columbia, this year and it was very hard to narrow them down to the forty-four pieces chosen.â�? The historical society initiated the exhibition in 2007 to celebrate their early tall grass prairie history along the Fort Wadsworth Trail. Inspired by the essay of the same name written by Minnesota essayist Bill Holms in 1990, they showcased art from five states in 2007. For artworks to be accepted for the jury process it must be prairie-themed and the artist must reside in a state or province with a prairie. The exhibition is free to the viewing public and coincides with Morrisâ�?�? Prairie Pioneer days which is visited by thousands each year.
