June 8, 2018 to June 9, 2021

Sam Love from Gary, Indiana is a poet and recipient of an "Our Town" grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.  The Lockport Poetry Project will be a progressive additive performance as poetry is wheat pasted underneath the 9th Street bridge along the I&M Canal.  The poems are created by community members.  This program is in partnership with the Gaylord Building, a site of The National Trust for Historic Preservation.


The Lockport Gallery features rotating exhibitions highlighting the art and visual culture of Illinois.
