Erickson Center for the Arts presents Park Art, "Playful Pinwheels"

Arts &Theater
Location: Erickson Center for the Arts, Curtis
Three years ago, visitors from all over the Midwest made their way to the Erickson Center for the Arts (ECA) to witness the first annual Park Art. The new tradition began with an exhibit known as the “Peaceful People.” “After receiving a great deal of positive feedback we decided to carry on this tradition as an annual exhibit,” said Kelly Chamberlin, ECA President. “We hope it continues to draw visitors to stop and discover both the Center and the town.” This year’s Park Art will be “Playful Pinwheels”. See this colorful display of spinning cheer on the Erickson Center lawn. The pinwheels will stand next to the Center through Labor Day, providing continuous color and joy to the field. They will then be sold as art at this year’s Art on the Lake, an ECA annual event, on September 3rd.

Premiere of "Boxed In" Documentary

Shows & Events
07:00 PM To 08:30 PM
Location: Peter White Public Library, Marquette
“Boxed In,” a new television documentary about the Dark Store issue in Michigan, an half-hour documentary will be shown.Tax attorneys representing large corporate retailers introduced the Dark Store theory to Michigan courts in 2010. Since then, big box retailers and other businesses in Michigan have been able to reduce their taxes to half or even one third of commonly accepted values in other states. The theory was originally based on the idea that big box stores were built to suit and not meant to be sold or leased. Therefore, the structure, “the big box,” should be valued as if the store was closed or out of business. The result has been far lower tax revenues for local units of government in Michigan that now face raising taxes on citizens or cutting services. “Boxed In” was produced by Emmy Award winning producer and NMU Professor Dwight Brady along with 14 students from Northern Michigan University.

The Marquette Regional History Center presents: Teal Lake History Hike

Outdoor
06:00 PM To 08:00 PM
Location: Teal Lake, Negaunee
Meet at the Lakeview School Parking Lot Join archaeologist, historian and author Jim Paquette on a visit to the camp sites of Negaunee's very first miners, the ancient people who once quarried the local Ajibik quartzite deposits on the northeast end of the lake thousands of years ago. We will explore the early history and prehistory of the Marquette Iron Range. We will talk about the geology, the archaeology, and the history of the lake and the surrounding area and follow the timeworn footpath along the north lakeshore to the very sites where the region's first families once lived. The hike will then lead to Negaunee's decades old "infamous" swimming hole--Old Swede--where we will wander up to the top of the nearby bluffs for an amazing view. Wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and bugs for this 2 hour hike. The terrain is uneven and there are hills. Tickets are $10 and available at the Marquette Regional History Center. Only 50 tickets available for the evening.
