JUNE EXHIBITS: THURSDAY PAINTERS AND KIRK CIAGLASKI

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its June LSAA Gallery
exhibition: Thursday Painters, titled “Oldies and Newies, In Memory of Marjorie Carlson
and Betty Schirtz.” This exhibit will feature paintings in acrylics, oils, alcohol inks,
markers and watercolors by Helen Steinhoff, Shirley Michelson, Marjorie Carlson and
Betty Schirtz. The Thursday Painters were organized over 60 years ago.
The SmallWorks Gallery and Peter White Public Library’s Huron Mountain Club Gallery
features work by Kirk Ciaglaski. Ciaglaski was born and raised in southern Michigan and
is now based out of Traverse City. During his younger days, he developed an interest in
skateboarding, which changed the direction of his life for the next 10 years. Through
skating, he was introduced to a sub-culture of art, music and other influences that
impacted his entire perception of life. The friends he made through skating inspired him
to experiment with photography, video, graphic design and painting. Kirk is widely
traveled and has documented stories from his skateboard. The exhibit will include
skateboards, photography and film.
The exhibits will run June 2-30, with an artist reception – held in conjunction with the
City of Marquette’s annual Art Week – on Wednesday, June 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is located in the lower level of the Peter
White Public Library. For more information or questions, please contact (906) 228-0472

PETER YARROW CONCERT SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 30

Hiawatha Music Cooperative and the City of Marquette announce a concert by folk music
legend, Peter Yarrow, scheduled for Friday June 30. The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the
Kaufman Auditorium in Marquette. This concert is made possible by a generous donation from
John and Pauline Kiltinen.
Peter Yarrow’s talents as a creative artist, both with legendary trio Peter, Paul & Mary and as a
solo performer, are frequently directed at using music to convey a message of humanity and
caring. His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs from Peter Paul
and Mary, including “Puff the Magic Dragon, “Day is Done” and “Light One Candle”. As a
member of the renowned musical trio, Yarrow has earned multiple gold and platinum albums, as
well as numerous Grammy Awards. Over the years, many issues – including equal rights, peace,
the environment, gender quality, homelessness, hospice care, and education – have moved Peter
to commit his time and talent.
Tickets may be purchased at hiawathamusic.org, by phone at 226-8575, or in person at 129 W.
Baraga Ave., Suite B, from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. All website sales and phone
sales will be held at the door for pick-up before the concert. General seating tickets are available
for $35, and there are a limited number of $50 tickets available for a special meet-and-greet
reception with Peter Yarrow from 5 to 6 p.m.
This concert is an official Art Week event. For more Art Week events, check Marquette’s new

Please consider helping the City of Marquette earn another League of American Bicyclists' (LAB) award as a Bicycle Friendly Community, by taking a survey that will be used as part of our application evaluation. See the link below, in the message from the Leauge. Marquette is one of four Michigan communities to have achieved the Silver level BFC award. Also, you will find attached the Bicycle Routes Plan that was adopted in December as part of the Community Master Plan update. City staff is developing an implementation plan for establishing several signed/marked bicycle routes on city streets, with work set to begin this spring and summer.

Thank you for applying to have Marquette recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Community!
Now that the Spring 2019 application deadline has passed, the BFC review process is officially underway. We look forward to working with you in the coming months as we review your community's application materials.

To help us gain a better understanding of local bicyclists' experiences in your community, we would greatly appreciate your help distributing the following public survey link so that bicyclists in your community can provide their input as well.

Public Survey Link: www.surveymonkey.com/r/app_BFC_SP19

The survey will remain open through Sunday, March 24, 2019.

This survey is open to anyone familiar with bicycling in your community, including those involved in submitting your BFC application. (Everyone receiving this email is encouraged to complete the survey and to share it broadly!) While strongly encouraged, distributing this survey link is not required. Your community will not be judged on the number of responses received.

This survey is meant to provide context for our review team's decision-making process, as well as valuable feedback for you directly from bicyclists in your community. Anonymous aggregate survey results will be included in your feedback materials later this Spring.

Award results will be announced in May, and we will inform applicants of their community's results 1-2 weeks before the public announcement is made.
