Dinner & A Little History in Lockport

Category: EVENTS

Topic: "Searching for Marquette: A Pilgrimage in Art". Through monuments and artwork, Ruth D. Nelson retells the story of the 17th-century French Jesuit missionary-explorer, Father Jacques Marquette, the celebrated surveyor of the Mississippi River. But his expedition down the Great River was only part of the Marquette legacy, which began on the southern shore of Lake Superior and ended on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. Searching for Marquette follows his journey through today's cities and towns in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Arkansas to uncover French relics, Native-American royalty, and hearty settlers in a drama of faith, the fur trade and the future of America's heartland. Speaker: Ruth Nelson lives in Downers Grove, Illinois and writes on art in the Midwestern United States. Reservations required. 6:00pm - 8:30pm, Public Landing Restaurant, $24 CCA Members, $29 Non-Members.
