Former Minnesota State University art professor Lila Hauge Stoffel sent us this lovely painting about Bloch’s journey to the present day. North Dakota and especially Turtle Mountain is represented at the top with the mountain and the turtle. The flags of the USA, Canada, and Mexico are included as well as the Geographical Center of North America monument which is in Rugby, ND.
