October 5-January 20, 2013
Exhibit: Great Lakes Decoys & Folk Sculpture
Reception: Friday, October 12, 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Ward Museum

The five Great Lakes, in the heartland of North America, have provided natural habitats, easily navigable waterways, and abundant food and fresh water since their formation over 10,000 years ago. Humans and wildlife alike have thrived along the shores of lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior as well as the smaller St. Clair, which together form the largest system of freshwater lakes in the world. This exhibit presents many individually made and commercially produced wildfowl and fish decoys, patent drawings, and
related folk sculpture from Ontario, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin
and Minnesota, along with a history of exclusive hunt clubs in those regions.
Admission: Free
