AT THE GARDEN ON THE BRIDGE
On May 23rd, 2021, Museum Educator Bev York, and volunteers created a pop-up gallery featuring prints of American Art at the Garden on the Bridge, across from the Mill Museum. It attracted approximately 120 people who strolled through and was one of the first open air activities in Willimantic since Covid restrictions were loosened. People are still wearing masks at Museum Events.
Our friends from the Huntington Homestead in Scotland, Dave Goodridge and Tina Mazza, have come in 18th Century outfits to help interpret the artwork which is associated with that period. Museum Treasurer, Claire Lary, appeared in 19th Century wear to take part in that century’s interpretation. Bev looks on.
Board Members, Luzella Roos and Michael Ader chat at the refreshment tent. Cases of local Hosmer Mountain Soda were available.
Bev, Executive Director Jamie Eves and Duke York set up and secure some quilt frames to hang more artwork.
