The YS Arts Council and the YS Historical Society presented “Beyond Flour and Sugar: The Wheeling Gaunt Legacy and Yellow Springs In the Civil War Era” on Friday, Jan. 20, at Antioch University Midwest. Talks were given by Dave Neuhardt and Steven Deal chronicling village life during the Civil War and the history of Wheeling Gaunt, who was a former slave and prominent village philanthropist in the 19th century. Pictured here, sculptor Brian Maughan watched as Gallery Coordinator Nancy Mellon unveiled his new work, a bust of Gaunt. The sculpture was added to the YS Arts Council’s permanent collection.
