Lydia Henry grew up in Claremont and is a long-time resident of Arbol Verde. She became interested in manhole covers a decade ago when she recognized their creative designs as art and realized how the information written on them contributes to the historic record. Her goal in rubbing covers is to document the work of unknown artists lost to history, acknowledge manhole cover design as a body of art, and contribute awareness of the role they can play in the field of historical archaeology. The presentation will include manhole cover rubbings from the local area, as well as ones done on her travels to different regions of the country.
