“The North Manitou Shoal Light (affectionately known as ‘The Crib’) has been part of the Manitou Passage’s unique horizon since 1935 and holds a special place in my memories of Pyramid Point,” Olsen said. “Whether falling asleep in my camp bunk to the sound of the fog horn, watching ships pass by it on my grandparents’ porch, or seeing the pulsing red light from the bluffs at night, I have spent a lifetime admiring it from afar.”

In summer 2021 Olsen toured The Crib with the North Manitou Light Keepers. “The painting captures the moment the boat pulled up,” he said, “brilliant blue skies contrasting the radiant white of the refurbished exterior — the moment a distant beacon became tangibly close.”
