Rediscover a centuries old walking trail between the St. Joseph River and the Kankakee River/Grand Kankakee Marsh once used by Native Americans, European traders, settlers, and missionaries. Commissioned by the Museum to document an aspect of the local area as part of the City of South Bend’s 150th anniversary, photographer Kay Westhues focused on this now almost hidden route. Westhues will share the history of the portage path and the documenting of the site.

At 5:30 p.m. the doors to the Annenberg Auditorium will open and at 5:45 p.m. Westhues will begin her illustrated presentation on the twelve images in the exhibiiton and show additional images she photographed of the former walking path. Her presentation will conclude with a Q & A session.

That evening Westhues will sell and sign copies of The Portage Path: Returning to Our History exhibition catalogue ($15/each; softcover, 32 pages). They can also be purchased from her website.

All 3rd Thursdays are from 5:00-7:30 p.m., free, open to all, include refreshments, and are a great way to connect with art in new ways.  All of the exhibitions and galleries are open that evening.
