For the past 150 years, Americans have been fascinated by the medieval past. Drawing from the work of contemporary illustrators Tony DiTerlizzi, Leo and Diane Dillon, and Ian Schoenherr, as well as historical works from the Museum’s Howard Pyle collection, this exhibition takes a look at the fantasy medieval realms of some of our beloved young adult reads. From magical creatures, castle complexes, and images of knighthood, prepare to be transported into re-imaginations of the medieval world that reflect contemporary America’s changing understanding of gender equality, cultural identity, disability, and difference.Read more »

Annual Holiday Craft Show
Friday, December 4, 2020
as part of our First Friday Programming
4 - 8 PM | FREE | Cash bar & hot beverages
ANNUAL HOLIDAY CRAFT SHOW
Our annual Contemporary Craft Show will look a little different this year, but will still be a safe and festive holiday shopping experience! We are looking for vendors selling handmade arts and crafts, all mediums considered. In order to keep COVID-19 measures in place, and due to a Lobby Installation, the 2020 Holiday Craft Show will not take place in our Lobby. Instead, vendors will be set up in tents outside on our terrace or inside our auditorium. All social distancing guidelines will be followed at this event, and tables will be spread out to avoid crowding.
TASTE OF THE HOLIDAYS will not take place this year.
That's not all!
