Some paintings considered offensive or innaccurate might be removed from the Capitol


ST. PAUL (KMSP) - During the renovation at the State Capitol, some of the paintings currently hanging on the walls may be replaced. The reason is some of the paintings have been deemed offensive and historically inaccurate.

A special subcommittee will be making preliminary recommendations by the end of the month to decide what to do with the paintings. They are likely to keep the governor’s portraits in some form or another. However, the fate of the paintings featuring Native Americans is still undetermined.
