Historic books, manuscripts and framed exhibits related to Martin Luther’s legacy of 1517 in Germany, England and the New World will be featured during an exhibit at the Kreft Gallery on the university’s main campus, 4090 Geddes Road. The show is open to the public October 24-December 3, with a gallery talk and reception scheduled Friday, October 27 at 7 p.m.

This free exhibition features examples of marvelously crafted woodcuts dating back to 1534, as well as the first complete Luther Bible printed that same year. It is a marvel both linguistically and from a graphic arts perspective.

Kreft Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday from 12-4 p.m. and weekends from 1-4 p.m. For more information, please call 734-995-7537.
