Join us for a tour that discusses cultural icons Superman and Wonder Woman. Explore the impact of these superheroes as they weave their way into the fabric of Americana as interpreted by artists Matthew Bennett and Ummarid Eitharong.
Free for Appleton members; included with admission fee for nonmembers. This tour meets in the lobby and is approximately 45 minutes in length.
Join us for a viewing of "Lost Springs," which follows the inimitable artist Margaret Ross Tolbert as she experiences the magic and beauty of a series of freshwater Florida springs forgotten by the state and left to decay behind a nearly 50-year-old failure of big government spending. Every three or more years, the water behind the Kirkpatrick Dam in north-central Florida is lowered, exposing an environment that is still raw with both tragedy and hope. The film explores themes of loss, wonder and experience in nature as Tolbert joins local and regional experts on a boat trip up the long-fabled Ocklawaha River to witness this newly-revealed, transient landscape and to find the lost springs of the Ocklawaha.
