Family Makes Donation To Museum

The family of Rema Furlong recently donated an art piece to the Grundy County Museum in Trenton. The framed art work is entitled “The Missouri Legend” and is a numbered etching on marble depicting 31 historical events in Missouri’s history, including the state seal, state bird and state flower. The artist is Charles Goslin, a graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute and an illustrator for Hallmark Cards. The donation was made by Joe and Marilyn Furlong, Pat and John Mertens, and Jim and Wava Furlong in memory of their mother, who was a long-time supporter and past board member of the museum.
