Wendy Marciniak, executive director at Chesterton Art Center, holds a painting of the dunes that she lent to be displayed as part of a collection of items representing Porter County that will be showcased at the Statehouse in Indianapolis from April 20 to March 10. Around her are some of the other display items.

People from throughout the state will get a chance to learn that Porter County is home to the Indiana Dunes, talented artists, a renowned arboretum, a great university and several businesses that make products ranging from baseball bats to wine.

Items that showcase Porter County began displaying in the foyer of Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann’s Statehouse office on April 20 and will continue to run through May 10. Ellspermann invited Indiana Dunes Tourism, the official tourism bureau of Porter County, to fill her display cabinet for a three-week period.

Among the items that will be on display are a painting of the Indiana Dunes from Chesterton Art Center and a photograph of the dunes by Air One Photography in Valparaiso.

Other items include a model railroad locomotive from Taltree Arboretum & Gardens in Valparaiso, which is home to an elaborate model railway garden; Orville Redenbacher memorabilia from Porter County Museum in Valparaiso; a basketball and other Valparaiso University items; and a painting from Frontline Foundation in Chesterton, which hosts the annual Hooked on Art Live Street Art Festival.

Several products that are made in the Valparaiso area will also be featured, including a Hoosier Bat Company baseball bat, Anderson’s Winery wine, Simply Amazing Market popcorn and Valpo Velvet ice cream.

“We appreciate every opportunity to showcase Porter County and let people know we’re home to the Indiana Dunes, great attractions and unique shopping and dining,” Lorelei Weimer, executive director of Indiana Dunes Tourism, said.

Ellspermann said she uses her display case to highlight Indiana’s counties, showcasing their history, culture and businesses. Ellspermann will be in Porter County on May 7 to speak at the Recognition of Service Excellence (ROSE) Luncheon at Strongbow Inn, hosted by Indiana Dunes Tourism and Visit Michigan City LaPorte.
