University-Northern

The 2013-2014 Montana State University-Northern Chancellor's Lecture Series will consist of talks on vital topics by distinguished guest speakers.

There is no admission.

The first speaker will be Hipolito Rafael Chacon who will present on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Applied Technology Center, Hensler Auditorium. His presentation is titled, "Art of Glacier National Park."

From its creation more than 100 years ago, Glacier National Park has been a mecca for visual artists who have found much to appreciate in its natural and scenic beauty.

Chacon presents the rich visual history of the park, especially the role played by the Hill family and the Great Northern Railway in developing the park's infrastructure as well as promoting this national treasure. The lecture focuses on the early years of tourism in the West and the importance of art as a lure to tourism.

• Neal Lewing — Singing the Lewis & Clark Legacy, Thursday, Oct. 20

• Dan Thyer — The Sundance Kid in Montana, Thursday, Nov. 7
