Mike Gordon will be the featured speaker at the Albert Lea Art Center’s monthly Dorothy Godtland Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Gordon and his extensive collection of Indian artifacts are well known at local Big Island Rendezvous events. He will speak on Native American Indian Culture, brain tanning, making of Indian utensils and the story of wampum. His collections include numerous arrowheads and other true artifacts that he has found locally. He will give suggestions about locating artifacts in the area. Gordon has done events for Boy and Girl Scouts Clubs so youth are invited to attend his lecture.

The Art Center’s lecture series showcases local and visiting artists and craftsmen, and include painters, woodworkers, musicians, poets, potters, storytellers, jewelry artists, sculptors and more.
