Chairs used by Bob Dylan, other famous Minnesotans go on display


If you're willing to stand for a while, you can now see an exhibit where some famous Minnesotans used to sit.

The Associated Press reports that the Hennepin Gallery at the Hennepin County Government Center has opened a new display of unique chairs.

Among the chairs in the exhibit is one Minnesota Music Icon Bob Dylan used when performing at the Ten O'Clock Coffee House in Minneapolis in 1960.

See a slideshow of the chairs here.

Also on display is a bentwood chair that Minneapolis settler Franklin Steele sat in as he provided provided provisions to soldiers at Fort Snelling in the 1850s.

The Hennepin History Museum provided the collection to the Hennepin Gallery, which is free and open daily to the public from Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Hennepin County Government Center Level A.
