Cemetery ART Program & Dinner
May 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Cemetery ART Program & Dinner on Thurs., May 30, 2018. A talk about graveyard art by historians Dr. Loren Horton & Michael Zahs, co-authors of the new book: Grave Marker Symbols: A Field Guide. Markers and the symbols that adorn them often had deep personal & social meanings that were intended to last for eternity. Learn how to “read” them & you’ll see the time & people in a whole new light! And as Zahs shared with the director, “A cemetery should be enjoyed, it honors the people who are there.” Also, a virtual (slide) tour of Oak Shade Cemetery by Jay Kacena, President of Friends of Oak Shade Cemetery & VP of the Marion Historical Society. Participants will be encouraged to share their stories & observations. Advance Tickets $15. RSVP Call 447-6376. Limited to 50.
