We meet Grace McKinstry, an internationally known painter, who lived in Faribault in the late 1800s and early 1900s. She had works exhibited in the Paris Salon, and her paintings can been seen at the Rice County Historical Society in Faribault, the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, and the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
