In this talk based on his newest book, Guardians of Michigan, Jeff Morrison will share over one hundred incredible pictures of interesting architectural sculpture found on buildings throughout Michigan, from Ann Arbor to Ontonagon and all places in between. Jeff will dive into some of the symbolism behind these sculptures and reveal untold stories of the artists, artisans, and architects involved in the creation of these wonderful structures and the unique art that adorns them.
