Tales from tiles
Ames Public Library Auditorium
Free and open to the public
Presented by Kathy Svec, Ames Historical Society Volunteer
The seventeen unique, interpretive art tiles on sixteen brick piers along Fifth Street in downtown Ames begin to tell the stories of people, places, and events in the city's history. This seated tour reveals the background for each terra cotta tile as well as the lanterns and decorative paving of Main Street's streetscape design by David Dahlquist. Kathy will also provide an overview of all the walking tour guides available in the Ames Historical Society's shop.
The 2018 Lecture Series is presented in partnership with Ames Public Library.
NOTE: This is a topic change from the originally planned talk about early immigrants to Story County. Mark Barron will present the immigration talk at a later date.
