What should we save? Only the blockbuster structures with famous names attached? What about the barns that record the innovative wit of the rural populace, and the small houses that are essential to understanding our democratic history? Expect a spellbinding and enlightened perspective from Henry Glassie, retired I.U. folklore professor and author. Hardanger fiddle performance by Julane Lund, sponsored by Traditional Arts Indiana.
