2018 Spring Lectures

Eevery first and third Wednesday of the month, from February through May to hear a new lecture series! First Wednesdays are presented by curator Lori Wear and every third Wednesday we will have a guest lecturer. It is free for members, $5 for students, and $10 for the public. It is held in our Standard School building at 6:00 pm and runs for about an hour or two. Each lecture will showcase a different and unique topic about Kern’s past. This is a fun opportunity to learn more about how, what, where, and why our community is the way it is today!
