MONROE - Recently acquired artwork by Carl Marty Sr., a prominent Monroe cheesebroker, poet, collector and painter who died in 1960, will be unveiled as part of a presentation titled "Carl Marty: A Retrospective Look at a Life Well Lived," at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Grand Hall of Turner Hall of Monroe. As part of Turner Hall's Swiss Heritage Series, local historian and author Kim Tschudy will use slides to provide a glimpse into the life of Marty, a Swiss emigrant who not only impacted Monroe's cheese industry, but left behind a legacy of artwork and poetry, much of which is housed on permanent display in the Ratskeller of the Turner Hall of Monroe. Tschudy will also touch upon the Northernaire, a well-known luxury resort hotel near Three Lakes, which was built by Marty's sons, Carl O. and Robert Marty.
