‘Selling Nahma’ gallery exhibit

MARQUETTE -The William Bonifas Fine Arts Center, along with the Nahma Township Recreation Committee, is inviting individuals who have stories about the town of Nahma to share them as a way to expand archival documentation for the newest gallery exhibit, “Selling Nahma,” which opens at the Arts Center in Escanaba on Thursday and will continue through Aug. 7.

Glenn Lamberg, chair of the Nahma Township Recreation Committee, is heading up the co-ordination of stories.

“The main focus I perceive is to create a deep sense of historical presence in Nahma,” Lamberg said in a news release.

“Selling Nahma” is made possible in part by a grant from Michigan Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and will combine historical items and pictures along with a variety of oral histories by current and former residents.

Individuals who wish to share their own stories or pictures can do so online by visiting the special Facebook group, “Nahma Township Memories.”
