69.L&L – Jared Basker

Although Edward Basker died in 1972, his art can be seen all around South Bend. A selection of his best-known pieces—mostly watercolors—will be on view at the St. Joseph County Public Library for the next two months, but it won’t end there. The community can also tap a new Bendable resource. (Just go to “Explore” and search “Basker.”) “It’s a unique experience to be able to cement his name into a source where people can continue to learn about him,” said Jared Basker, Edward’s grandnephew, who organized the exhibit. “People will be able to keep his legacy alive.”
