Jason Molina routinely made illustrations while riding in the van. Most were off the cuff, meant to entertain bandmates, pass time, or possibly vent frustrations. Some were on notes to specific bandmates. This exhibit brings together the Molina drawings which were either left on the van interior, or left behind in notebooks. One red spiral notebook contains a series of 24 drawings entitled Tin and a Dumpling Magazine, Issue 1. The pictures are a mix of dark and whimsical, and often reveal Molina's funny side, which his friends and family knew well, but which was in stark contrast to much of his songwriting.
