This special exhibit of American propaganda posters commemorates the 100th anniversary of the U.S.’s entry into WWI. The U.S. government decided to use an artistic popular medium, the poster, to incite fear in its citizens of an unknown enemy on another continent. Some of the illustrations have become the most iconic American images ever made, such as James Montgomery Falgg’s stern image of Uncle Sam pointing to the viewer above the words, “I Want You for U.S. Army.”

6:30 P.M.
$4 for Adults, Free for Students

Although 18th c. Walhonding Valley was the location of migrations, towns, and powerful Native American chiefs, few writings concentrate on the valley itself. Dr. Scott E. Butler will present a panorama of the its earliest history until the early 1800's. A grammatically correct derivation of the meaning of the name “Walhonding” will also be presented, together with possible reasons why the Delaware Indians chose it for the area. The Johnson Humrickhouse Museum is Accredited by the American Association of Museums and is home to the famous Newark Holy Stones.


 January 22, 2018 - April 14, 2018: "Action!" An Exhibition of LeRoy Neiman's Champions

Muskingum University; Louis O. Palmer Gallery and Philip & Betsey Caldwell Hall
163 Stormont Street
New Concord, Ohio 43762

From Jan. 22 through April 14, a large selection of LeRoy Neiman’s works will be on display at Muskingum University on loan from The LeRoy Neiman Foundation. The exhibition, entitled “Action! An Exhibition of LeRoy Neiman’s Champions,” features 74 works on display in Ohio for the first time. “Action!,” offered free to the public, is presented by Muskingum University and Kessler Sign Company, with additional support provided by Century National Bank and Barnes & Noble.

 Best known for his brilliantly colored, stunningly energetic images of sporting events and leisure activities, LeRoy Neiman was one of the most popular living artists in the United States before his passing in 2012. Even those unfamiliar with his name will recognize his work, which often featured brilliant and bright strokes of magentas, yellows and greens applied in a fluid, abstract manner to describe the action taking place before him at Super Bowl games, Olympic contests and heavyweight boxing matches. Neiman counted many major sports figures and celebrities, including Frank Sinatra and Muhammad Ali, as personal friends, and was often seen sketching at major events on live television.

 Exhibition hours for “Action!,” the Neiman exhibition at Muskingum University, are from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays; 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursdays; and 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays through April 14. The exhibition is closed on Sundays. “Action!” is split between two different gallery locations on campus, the Louis O. Palmer Gallery and Philip & Betsey Caldwell Hall.

There’s something for everyone on the Three Rivers Wine Trail! Six unique wineries, two breweries and a distillery are all within a short drive of one another in East-central Ohio. The Appalachian Foothills of Coshocton County serve as the backdrop for this eclectic trail. Wine lovers can taste Ohio wines at a California-style bar, in a converted flour mill, or a big yellow barn.

On a quiet farm in America’s heartland,an Italian war bride becomes an average Iowan housewife. That is, until a National Geographic photographer, who is seeking directions to the area’s historic covered bridges, knocks on her door. As she helps him find the location for the photo shoot, an unexpected, yet powerful, connection grows. And so begins the story, told through beautiful music, of a sweeping romance that makes us question the roads we travel, the doors we open and the bridges we dare to cross. The musical is based on the Robert James Waller’s 1992 best-selling novel, “The Bridges of Madison County”. The script was written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Marsha Norman with Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.
