Copper Country Mining Artist William Krieber (b. 1930)

One of the most popular motifs in the Copper Country for artists is the Quincy mine No. 2 headframe. The Quincy mine is a familiar guidepost to Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula. Standing high on a ridge, it is the first mining building a visitor sees when arriving in the area. William Krieber has captured this landmark on canvas, as well as the once-nearby, splendidly gable-roofed shafthouse of the Quincy No. 6 mine, which was sadly lost to a fire decades ago.
