IWGlines Folk Art

The staff at Badger Mine and Museum is carefully reviewing gifted historic items received from the Glenn Matl estate. The collection includes historic family and Shullsburg pictures as well as important family letters and genealogical information.

Included in the Glenn Matl collection are two significant folk/naive pieces of art drawn by I.W. Glines. This important art work is being restored by Wisconsin Historical Society and will be returned to Badger Mine and Museum in time for a one day viewing on July 4th. After that time the original artwork will be placed in archival storage while framed copies will be on permanent display at the museum.
