The print by artist, Eloise Adams, featured Olle Olson, the Norwegian Immigrant. Other performers depicted are the shoemaker, the trapper, a mountain man, Hannibal — a vendor and “The Digger” — a grave digger protrayed by Steve Hanson of Albert Lea.

The prints are numbered and signed. A limited number of 150 are hand-painted.

The prints are a fundraiser for the two student days. Over 3,500 young people from area schools attended the Rendezvous on Thursday and Friday and got a first-hand history lesson.

After the Rendezvous the prints may be purchased at Adams Originals Shop in downtown Albert Lea.

“It is a thrill for me to know the prints are helping fund the two educational days at the Rendezvous,” said Eloise Adams.
