SHAWNEE -- Bill Oliver, known internationally as Mr. Habitat, will present a free public concert at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27.

With over twenty years of concerts, campfires, and cafetoriums, Bill's programs are educational and entertaining, engaging and motivating. In schools, National Parks, and river-side celebrations, his songs bring to life the vital issues of Habitat conservation.

"We are very excited for Mr. Habitat to visit Shawnee," said Donna Merkt, MGMoA curator of education. "As environmental issues are becoming increasingly important to our community, Bill's musical messages promoting environmental conservation and sustainability will find an appreciative audience among our youth and adults."

The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is at 1900 W MacArthur, Shawnee, on the campus of St. Gregory's University.

The museum is an independent non-profit organization. For additional information about the museum's exhibitions and programs, please visit
