Meet the Author: Kevin J. Miyazaki

Saturday, October 4, 2014  10 a.m.-Noon

Set sail on a photographic journey around Lake Michigan. Join author and photographer Kevin J. Miyazaki for an informal talk and book signing for his book, "Perimeter: A Contemporary Portrait of Lake Michigan," a new title from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press.

Commissioned by the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University to create an artwork reflecting on the importance of freshwater, Milwaukee-based photographer Miyazaki embarked on a two-week, 1,800-mile drive around Lake Michigan. He traveled its perimeter, through Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan, to produce what he calls "a contemporary portrait of Lake Michigan."

You can purchase a signed copy of the book from the author on Saturday.
