About the Event

The first glass mosaic by Tricia Boucha will be unveiled on Kaleva’s Centennial Walkway on September 26 at 4 pm. This is the first of three reproductions of the Kalevala murals that the artist is gifting to the community.  The murals which are in the back entrance of the Bottle House Museum were painted during the Depression by young people in the NYA under the direction of artist Harry Armstrong. The six murals depicting scenes from the Finnish epic poem, the Kalevala, were dedicated in September 1940 with a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the town. The other two mosaics will be placed on the Walkway in the spring. A grant from the Manistee County Community Foundation helped make this project possible.
