“Frederic Remington’s widow, Eva Adele Caten Remington, was determined that her husband’s artwork should have a permanent, public home in Ogdensburg, and was dedicated to keeping his artistic legacy alive,” says Museum Interim Executive Director Mimi VanDeusen. “After her death, and her generous bequest of the Remington Art Collection to the Ogdensburg Public Library, the leaders of Ogdensburg worked hard to make her vision a reality, and in 1923 the Remington Art Memorial opened its doors to the public. The Museum is now 100 years old and it’s time to celebrate!”
