Wednesday: Don Nolan and the American Tattoo
Posted 9/8/2014
The American Craft Council, 1224 Marshall St. NE, announces its free fall lecture series starting Wednesday, Sept. 10, 7-9 p.m., with "Don Nolan and the American Tattoo."

With a career in tattooing that began in 1955, Nolan is both a rare witness to and active participant in the seismic changes tattooing has undergone in the 20th century, from enigmatic folk art to a ubiquitous form of self-expression. Upcoming lectures in this series will be held on the second Wednesday of the month, through December. For more information, call 612-206-3100 or visit craftcouncil.org.
