Kitty Smoke Exhibit Featured At Area Museum
The National Museum of the Great Lakes will host The Adventures of Kitty Smoke and Her Friends: The Exhibit at the museum through Wednesday, February 28.
The Adventures of Kitty Smoke and Her Friends is a delightful story about a Great Lakes tugboat, Kitty Smoke, and her amazing comeback. It features 22 illustrations that have been professionally framed to preserve this incredible story.
The children’s book, published by the museum, is a product of the imagination of Alexander B. Cook, a longtime supporter and former board chairman of the Great Lakes Historical Society, which owns and operates the National Museum of the Great Lakes.
“On this, the 49th year that Cook has painted the society’s annual holiday card, we were thrilled to be able to publish this artistic snapshot of the Great Lakes maritime industry,” said Christopher Gillcrist, executive director of the museum.
PNC Bank provided a grant to publish Kitty Smoke and enable the museum to facilitate field trips and/or outreach programs to underserved children across the community. The book will be sold only at the National Museum of the Great Lakes, with all proceeds supporting the organization.
“The Great Lakes make up the largest body of fresh water on the planet and they have a significant impact on Northwest Ohio,” said Bill McDonnell, PNC regional president of Toledo. “This book helps children understand how the Great Lakes enable our economy to thrive.”
“At this time, more than 30 programs have been scheduled around the community,” Gillcrist added. “An NMGL educator will facilitate the outreach programs and leave a copy of Kitty Smoke behind at each location for more children to enjoy.”
The National Museum of the Great Lakes is located at 1701 Front St., Toledo. Admission to the exhibit is included with regular museum admission. For more information, visit www.inlandseas.org.

New Nature Photography Exhibit Announced
Michigan-based photographer Bryce Denison returns to the National Center for Nature Photography gallery at Secor Metropark with a new exhibit featuring photographs of flora from Central and North America.
The exhibit is open now through Friday, March 30. Hours are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. The Photography Center is inside Secor Metropark, 10001 Central Ave., Berkey.
The exhibit celebrates Denison’s search for beauty in nature combined with information about how Native Americans used flowers, trees and various plants as food and medicine. The show, featuring more than 60 large, hand-printed and framed images, is a follow-up to his exhibit of fauna images displayed last year at the center.
Denison is an award-winning photographer, noted lecturer, author and artist who has traveled extensively to acquire the images visitors will see in this show.
The son of a professional hunting and fishing guide who grew up in the outdoors, he has aimed his camera at iconic landscapes, spectacular architecture, wildlife in its natural habitat and people from all walks of life. He holds a BFA in applied photography from the College for Creative Studies and a master’s degree from Wayne State University, where he spent many years as a professor. He has been the director of Midwest Photography Workshops for the last 40 years.

Toledo Museum Of Art Offers The Mummies
The Toledo Museum of Art will feature The Mummies: From Egypt to Toledo in the Canaday Gallery through May 6.
In 1906, the founders of the Toledo Museum of Art, Edward Drummond Libbey and Florence Scott Libbey, visited Egypt, where they purchased a pair of Egyptian mummies as part of a collection of artifacts. Due to conservation issues and ethical considerations surrounding the display of human bodies, these mummies are only occasionally on view. This special installation will trace the history of Egyptian mummies, from their lives and the burial rituals associated with them in Ancient Egypt to their rediscovery during the Napoleonic era and the Egyptomania craze that followed. Egyptian artworks from the Museum’s collection and loans from other institutions will help situate the mummies in their historical context. The exhibition will also explore several intersecting issues for TMA and other cultural museums related to the collecting and display of these fascinating and significant objects, including whose mummies are these, do they belong in an art museum and what can we learn from them?
Admission to the exhibition is free for museum members and $10.00 for nonmembers. Discounted tickets are available for seniors, college students and military personnel ($7.00) and ages 5-17 ($5.00). Admission for school groups is free.
