Look up! You might just notice an ornamental architectural fixture crafted by noted sculptor Corrado Parducci, who completed 13 installations in the Lansing area during the ’30s, ’50s and ’60s in Lansing. Parducci’s work can be seen at Michigan Bell, on the campus of Michigan State University, the Capitol Area District Library downtown main branch, several churches and Michigan National Bank Tower (Boji).

The Historical Society of Greater Lansing is hosting Dale A. Carlson, photographer and architectural historian, for a Dec. 9 program at the Robin Theatre in REO Town. Carlson will discuss Lansing’s Parducci installations and his work statewide, including notable work in Detroit at the Guardian Building, the Buhl and the Penobscot.
