A Visit from Will Dilg & Scenes from Our Mighty Mississippi
A Visit from Will Dilg and Scenes from Our mighty Mississippi is a magical journey of song, storytelling and visual imagery, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Upper Mississippi National Wildlife and Fish Refuge. Exactly one century ago, Will Dilg was a founding member of the Izaak Walton League and the driving force behind the creation of the refuge.
This visit will help us all to see just how unique and special our 261 mile section of the Mississippi River is today. Steven Marking – an acclaimed baritone, Resident Entertainer for American Cruise Lines, and an inspiring champion for the Mississippi River – stars in this special presentation, sponsored by Friends of Pool 7 & 8.
In addition to the performances, audiences will enjoy a group exhibit in the Front Gallery of the Pump House Regional Arts Center that features artwork inspired by America’s greatest river. Featuring artwork by Casey Bennet, Carl Homstad, Lori Ehlke, Carol Keene, Peter Mutschler and Colleen Shore, the exhibit is on display from January 10-February 24 with an Artist Reception on February 2 from 5 to 7 pm.
