Lectures take place in the Turtle Bay Visitor Center. Cost for each lecture is $3 for members and $5 for nonmembers.

Join Turtle Bay tonight  at 7 p.m. for the second of a stimulating three-part series of talks centered around the exhibition The Art of Mt. Shasta. As with the first talk, the final two talks will be given by local art historian Bill Meisslapinae, one of the guest curators of the exhibition (along with Robyn G. Peterson), and the author of “Mount Shasta: an Annotated Bibliography” and “Sudden and Solitary: Mount Shasta and its Artistic Legacy.” He specializes in the scholarly exploration of California’s history, including the works of John Muir, Joaquin Miller and other Mount Shasta legends.

Come out and listen as he enlightens us each week with a new theme supporting the rich history of our iconic peak, Mt. Shasta!
