'About Town' display at City Hall
MARQUETTE - The community art project About Town will be on display at Marquette city hall through December.
Five paintings of landmark buildings were painted by local artists in an unusual way.

The panels were done in many different styles and mediums, including oil, acrylic. watercolor, collage, encaustic, and fabric applique.
The project was developed and funded by the Lake Superior Art Association with support from the Marquette Arts and Culture Center. In all, 39 artists contributed their talents to the 45 panels that form the five finished works. For more information, call 250-7364.

The deal put both men in the crosshairs of the public, the press and even the other players. Demonstrating tremendous courage, Robinson faced unabashed racism on every side, forever changing the game of baseball. Starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford, "42" was released in April 2013, is rated PG-13 and runs for 128 minutes. Fall Flicks welcomes the public to bring their own takeout supper and enjoy this recently released feature film.
