original University of Minnesota Press editions.What happens to the
American small community in periods of war and challenge, change
and uncertainty? In an age of planning, why not look at the
community basis for planning?With these two questions as a basis,
the University of Minnesota, in 1943, began one of the most
exhaustive studies of an American community undertaken in recent
times. Red Wing, Minnesota, on the banks of the Mississippi River
in Goodhue County was chosen as the "typical small American
city."Professors of education, economics, sociology, art, home
economics, journalism, and public health joined with city officials
and civic leaders in studying every aspect of the city and its
people. Their findings are published in eleven bulletins, each
devoted to an individual topic. The entire survey, entitled The
Community Basis for Postwar Planning, was coordinated by Roland S.
Vaile, professor of economics and marketing at the University of
Minnesota, and made possible by a grant from the Graduate
School.The present study, Art in Red Wing, considers the public
role of art and architecture in the reconstruction of the postwar
Red Wing community; examining a variety of artistic expression
including housing style, civic architecture, window displays,
public sculpture, and pottery.
