Artist and Museum help properly display canoe

Daily Republic News story - The birch wood canoe at the Dakota Discovery Museum was currently being displayed on the floor. This was actually over time causing damage to the canoe. With a team effort between Clark and the museum director Lori they came up with a plan.... hanging it. Clark came up with three handforged extended hooks to " sling" the canoe from straps of leather Lori created. It is now safe and snug in its new home above the castings of Lewis and Clark at the museum. And with this style display the item is sure to last longer for future generations to enjoy.
