THIS SUMMER IN THE CULTURAL CENTER: Art + History Series
We invited different visual artists to the Museum, with free reign over our vaults and storage areas to create an exhibit that interprets the Museum’s collection and/or the local history of the town. Each artist brings their own work, aesthetic and interest to our collections, inevitably leading to dynamic discoveries by presenting our objects in new, surprising contexts
We are also hosting a tea with each artist. Please join Museum staff, members, friends and the artist for an afternoon of tea and tasty goodies as we talk art, history, and the mixing/matching of the two. FREE ADMISSION.
Jenny Fragosa: September 5 – October 11, 2014
Tea with Jenny Fragosa: Saturday, September 6, 1-3 pm Free Admission
We can’t wait to see what Mashpee artist Jenny Fragosa will create in response to our collections. Working primarily as a printmaker and painter, she uses any media she can get her hands on to create. Visual imagery derived from her life, experiences, and emotions appears and disappears in her mark making. What will a trip through our vaults inspire her to create?
The Historical Society offices are open Tuesday to Friday, 10 am-3 pm
