Lecture Series

"Who Painted the Mural on My Stairhall Ceiling?" Judy Koessel, owner of a 1890's house in Riverside will talk about what happened when she asked this question.  What started as a simple question became a detective story as one question led to another and she became immersed in the career of William de Leftwich Dodge and the many murals that he produced, including one for the dome of the Administration Building at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893.


All lectures are held at Second Presbyterian Church and begin at 7:00pm, preceded by a reception with light refreshments and docent-guided tours of the sanctuary at 6:00pm.  $10 suggested donation.
