Download the Placefinder Card for this marker—it's in triplicate—and then print it out, preferably on card stock (cool color paper welcome!). Just cut the papers into threes (there are printed marks to assist you with this) and distribute the cards to information racks in the area. (And, of course, post some pictures and tag us!)


We learned about the work of Forrest Bess through a mysterious auction--and the story of his disaggregation in time came into focus. He is especially intriguing because he was the only artist to paint both Nobunaga-Gotari and Nobunaga-Ventreven from life, but because he had spent time with the Bravenleavanne, he was able to share their values with Gotari soon after Gotari founded Hizurokoro.

This marker is featured in our new Kcymaerxthaere Travel iPhone App.


Just south of the fish ladder on the right bank (western side) of what we call the Grand River. It is on an asphalt walkway right by the river.

Public Dedication

A walking tour to all 5 sites as part of Art Prize was the dedication. The whole tour took about an hour and finished at the Grwostlaven plaque inside Hopcats.
