"Reinventing Rural"/Fond du Lac Reads
Link to March 16 Fond du Lac Reporter article, "Exhibit celebrates Fond du Lac artists' roots".
Excerpt: When artist Nancy Donohue had her revelation, she rolled up her dungarees and set to work.
As one of 14 local artists asked to contribute to an eclectic exhibit titled “Reinventing Rural,” her thoughts turned to an old black-and-white photograph tucked away in a box.
The childhood image of her family — posed in and around her dad’s old pickup truck in Tule Lake, Calif. — became the impetus for her rural rememberings, which are on display through April 24 at Langdon Divers Community Gallery at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
The Reporter's editorial board give praise where it is due, "Cheers Library program has FdL reading". And that's largely due to the efforts of the Fond du Lac Public Library staff, which has done a considerable amount of work promoting a wide variety of March activities connected to Fond du Lac Reads.
