What’s Between the Covers?

Ever wonder what will happen to all the obsolete publications in print such as old encyclopedias or textbooks?

Join us at the Everhart Museum to see how old books have been transformed into sculptures and even a quilt! These artists have given discarded books a new life as unique works of art.

We will also have an opportunity to visit other galleries.

If you have a personal connection to the written word you won’t want to miss this new sensory experience.
It’s a “real page turner”!

Birds, Bees, Wildflowers – What Are They Good for Anyway?

All known civilizations have relied on, used and treasured the wild flora around them: for food, medicine, fodder, spices, aromas, poultices, magic potions, and – last, but not least, beauty and color –EXCEPT now. In our arrogant technical and scientific over-sophistication, we deem them “useless dirty weeds” to be rid of … to our own peril??

Join our own Uta Dreher for an informative discussion of Wildflowers, Thursday, June 9th at 2 pm.
