Join Tom O’Grady, instructor at Ohio University, for his presentation on Ohio canals. Beginning in 1825, Ohio began constructing its canal system that eventually included nearly 1,000 miles of channel and towpaths laced with stone locks and culverts, aqueducts, feeder lakes, and slack water ponds. These canals opened Ohio up to world commerce, allowing the export of surplus grains and manufactured goods and the import of items made in New York, London, and Paris.

Take art history one step further during this Master Inspired Art Workshop. Art Historian Felicia Stadelman presents an interactive art program in which you will learn about the artist Edgar Degas. Degas is the reluctant artist who had difficulty parting with his work. He said, “Creating artwork is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do.” His studies in pastel address the movement and position of the human body exploring the physicality and discipline of the dancers through the use of contours and unexpected vantage points.
