FIRST SATURDAY PRESENTATION – VOICES OF ARROW ROCK – COUNTY ELECTION
Using art to explore history, the Voices of Arrow Rock project brings to life lesser-known citizens of the historic village. It is about for- gotten and underrepresented people, their times, and spirits. Their voices span the centuries since Arrow Rock was first mapped by French explorers in the early eighteenth century. The fourth installment of this ground-breaking interpretive theatre series, by Brady Kateman, playwright; and Glenn North, poet is Voices of Arrow Rock: County Election.
In the summer of 1976 during the United States’ Bicentennial, Helen McDaniel introduced Mike Kateman to a new way of looking at George Caleb Bingham’s painting, “County Election.” As they chat about ancestors of residents who might be depicted in the painting, Helen’s answer to one of Mike’s questions forever changed his perspective. In their discussion, one of the characters in Bingham’s painting comes to vivid and insightful life.
LOCATION: GEORGE CALEB BINGHAM HOUSE
