In the shadow of Ishi: a tale of fish and glaciers


Mon, Mar 14th, 2011
Posted in Arts & Culture

Ring in the spring season on March 22, 2011, when the Preston Area Arts Council presents an educational and entertainment program of story-telling and music by area residents George Spangler and Janine Sherry.

The story-telling chronicles one man's passage from the homeland of Ishi, the last paleolithic Indian in America, to the unique Driftless Area of the Upper Midwest. George Spangler, Professor Emeritus of the University of Minnesota, will recount how his life-long fascination with fish took him on a journey of study and research, from the foothills of the Sacramento Valley in California, to the Great Lakes, finally coming to rest in the only unglaciated region of the upper Mississippi Valley. Illustrated with examples from biology and geology, the story weaves threads from Native American culture, pleistocene geology, and Manifest Destiny to arrive at a tapestry of arts, crafts, and historical interests in this special region of the Upper Midwest.

Janine Sherry began her musical career as a teenager singing on live radio and eventually moved into performing in night clubs. She now performs in small theatres throughout the Midwestern states of Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Janine moved here from Branson, Missouri, four and a half years ago, and will offer a lively toe-tapping program of classic country music.

The spring event will be held at 7 p.m. at the Community Room of F & M Community Bank, Preston, Minnesota, on Tuesday, March 22. The program is free to the public, bring friends and family, and join the arts council for an interesting evening of music and reflection.
