The Calumet Heritage Partnership kicks
off its 2016 Calumet Heritage Event Series at Substation No.
9 in Hammond with a gallery opening featuring two local artists
who capture the complex beauty and nature of the region’s industrial
landscape in watercolor paintings and photographs. Called
Heritage: Works by Kathy Los-Rathburn and Matthew Kaplan,
the exhibit is a collaboration between the Calumet Heritage
South Shore Arts.
It runs from January 15th to April 2nd, 2016. The
opening reception will be 5-8pm, Thursday, January 28th
at the gallery. Substation
No. 9 is located at 435 Fayette Street in Hammond, Indiana.
The 2016 Calumet Heritage Event Series
will explore the Calumet with engaging events throughout the
year: Calumet Rails Excursion (Spring) – a narrated train
ride from Chicago to South Bend aboard the South Shore Line;
Paddle the Calumet (Summer) – a kayak and canoe paddle trip
along the Calumet River seeing south Chicago as no one has seen
it before (well…except for tugboat captains); Bike the Calumet
(Autumn) – a bicycle ride from downtown Chicago to the Indiana
Dunes …nearly exclusively on paved trails.
The Calumet region, which extends from southern Chicago to central
LaPorte County, is likely the Chicago metro area’s best untapped
resource. Mostly known as the industrial powerhouse that once
provided much of the nation’s steel, the region is now appreciated
for its natural beauty, biodiversity, expanding artist communities
and excellent outdoor activities.
The Calumet Heritage Partnership seeks to preserve the Calumet
region’s bi-state industrial heritage and promote its natural,
cultural and recreational features. The Partnership is a 501(c)3
charitable organization. It is working to create the Calumet
National Heritage Area.
