On the Art Wall -- in the library's main floor Miron Fireside Room
The exhibit of photography on the art wall this April -- Dam Birds -- is courtesy of John Henry Gremmer, who photographed the birds in Downtown Menasha in mid-summer 2017. He beautifully captured the thousands of pelicans, cormorants, egrets, gulls, terns, great blue herons, and black-crowned night herons who make the Menasha Canal their home in summer.
On Wednesday, April 25, the photographer will be here at the library. The evening will begin at 6:00pm with Mr. Gremmer's slide show presentation of his photographic work from last summer. Discover how the beauty of nature is always present at the iconic Menasha Dam and how he applies his expertise to capturing it. This presentation will be in the lower level Company E Room.
At 7:00pm you are invited to visit the exhibit and join a reception with music and refreshments in the library's main floor Fireside Room.
