March is Women's History Month!

The origins of Women's history month are as a celebration in 1981 and the president proclaimed the week beginning March 7, 1982 as women's history week. In 1987 congress declared the month of March 1987 as Women's History Month. This month recognizes the changes that women have made throughout history to improve the environment, the laws for women in the U.S. (and other oppressed groups), as well as other improvements to the world. International Women's Day is celebrated March 8th

Aug. 28 - Nov. 03: True Likeness features contemporary portraits from diverse makers in various media, including video, photography, painting, collage, installation, sculpture, printmaking, and drawing. Artists’ identities and those presented through their works provide a snapshot of who we are as a country. Located at the Devos Art Museum during regular hours.

Sept. 16 - Jan. 27: On Saturday, September 16, the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center will be opening a landmark exhibition on the 1820 expedition of Lewis Cass on the Great Lakes. Many noted individuals are part of this story, including Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, Shingabowossin (Chief of the Ojibwe at Bahweting – Sault Ste. Marie), Ozhaguscodaywayquay (Susan Johnston), Charles Trowbridge and David Bates Douglass. For each of these individuals, the expedition would alter their lives, in positive and negative ways. For many of the expedition’s participants, they would leverage the adventure in their pursuit of government appointments and political ambitions. For the Indigenous people, this expedition would begin the process of American settlement of the region and the exploitation of its resources. The impact on their way-of-life and the natural world they relied upon them would be devastating, the effects of which they still struggle to deal with to this day. Located at the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center during regular hours.
