Two eagle sculptures (one atop the dome) define the exterior of the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, Minnesota.

WITH ALL THAT THE NATIONAL Eagle Center in Wabasha offers, it is perhaps easy to overlook the art.

But the eagle sculptures and other artwork showcased in this Mississippi River side building deserve study and appreciation.

From a sterling silver and 24K gold sculpture by A. Giannelli to a child’s colored drawing of an eagle discovered on a shelf, art abounds in this Minnesota eagle center.
