What followed when a classically-trained New England artist stepped off a stagecoach into the dusty Main Street of 1885 Rapid City? Thanks to images from Grace French’s 40-year career making and teaching art, sketchbooks, and a business ledger, we will discover the entrepreneurial and independent woman behind the myth. The lecture will be presented by educator and women's history advocate, Donna Fisher. The public forum will be held at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC); 12:00 p.m.; admission by donation.
