Czech adventurer inspires new exhibit
Jan Welzl was taken with the Yukon, and Scott Rogers has been taken with Welzl's exploits.
Welzl was a Czech adventurer, and a folk hero in his homeland. A memorial in Dawson City's cemetary has become an iconic spot for many Czechs.
Rogers is an artist, originally from Calgary, and Welzl's story inspired a new exhibit called Meanders Into Nonesuch Place, which is up at the Odd Gallery in Dawson City.
