February Exhibits announced

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its January LSAA Gallery exhibition, “A Love of Nature, Up Close and Personal,” by photographer Scot Stewart. Stewart is a teacher at Bothwell Middle School, having taught science, history, and even photography. He writes a weekly column for the Mining Journal on birds, and about a variety of Upper Peninsula natural history topics for the Marquette Monthly. His photographs accompany his writing and have appeared in a variety of exhibits, magazines, calendars and books. His favorite subjects are wolves, minerals, birds and macro subjects. “The beauty of nature brings a sense of joy and peacefulness we all need,” Stewart says. “I savor the opportunities to immerse myself in that realm and save small parts to share with others, hoping the joy and peace will come to them as well.”

The SmallWorks Gallery features pencil sketches and watercolors of local artist Elsa Clark Clement. A retired science teacher, Clement began to draw just three years ago. Her work is a result of a lifetime observing the natural world. Clement taught at Marquette Senior High School, and was also a lab adjunct and computer coding teacher for her alma mater, Northern Michigan University. A Marquette native, Clement is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Amos Harlow. Parents Lottie and Bob Clark nurtured her interest in science and encouraged exploration. An avid traveler, Clement has experienced wildlife across the globe. Yet, the wildlife of home is her artistic inspiration delicately captured in her first exhibit. Both exhibits will be displayed from Feb. 1-27 with an artist reception on Thursday, Feb. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be provided. The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library.

Residents are urged to keep items such as snow shovels and children’s toys off snowbanks. We also ask if possible to avoid parking vehicles on the streets so crews have access to all removal areas.

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.
