Vanka’s Ghost and Other Local Hauntings

Vanka’s Ghost and Other Local Hauntings

Tom White, Duquesne University Archivist and local historian, will tell the story of famed Croatian artist Maxo Vanka’s experiences with a spirit while painting his murals at St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Millvale, along with stories of other local hauntings.

Ted Bergfelt, Humanities Librarian, will give a brief book talk on The Muralist’s Ghost, a novel about Vanka written by Karen Mocker Dabson.  Copies are available at Gumberg Library and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
This event is paired with the Gift to America 2 exhibit of contemporary works inspired by Vanka's murals on display at Gumberg Library. Both are free and open to the public.
