Organized around the release of the new book IRONBOAT by Christopher Winters, this exhibition is a wonderfully vibrant and powerful collection of photographs tracing the toil and travels of a pair of ironboats on the Great Lakes Superior and Michigan.  Most notably, it is an artistic and visual record of the Wilfred Sykes—the largest vessel on the Great Lakes at the time of her launch in 1949—and the Edward Ryerson—one of two remaining straightdeckers on the American Great Lakes.  Following the success of his book Centennial, in which he chronicled life aboard the century-old lake steamer St. Marys Challenger, reportedly the oldest operational freight ship in the world, Winters returns to a subject that has captivated him for decades
