NEW FALL EXHIBIT PLANNED – We need your participation!

Bringing Vacation Home: Our Community On Vacation

Whether you travel far afield or enjoy a “stay-cation,” what are the ways you keep memories of that special time away from the workaday world? As we have for the past several years, the community is invited to submit proposed objects and/or framed works that reflect some aspect of their travels or the travels of other family members – what souvenir did they bring home for you?
