Event open Friday, December 4, 2020
through Friday, January 1, 2021
This annual event always kicks off on the first Friday of December. Traditionally, the exhibit offers artifacts from the Museum's collection and treasured items from the members of the Museum's friends and family. 
This year, our "exhibit" is a mélange of visual delights representing many cultures and religions. Be sure to catch the personal invitation from Kaitlyn Bylard, Museum Specialist to this year's WINTERFEST.
No WINTERFEST would be complete without the holiday music by Michael Ryan and Friends.
Please sit back and enjoy this year's WINTERFEST!

The ART of TIME:
Japan and its Seasons
Exhibition opened Friday, February 21
Currently Closed due to Covid-19.
"April showers bring May flowers" is a common phrase that is often used to describe the changes in the weather and the experience of springtime. In Japan, the experience of the seasons is embedded in language, celebrated in national festivals, and codified in art. Over the centuries, the Japanese transformed the passage of time as portrayed by the seasons into artistic aesthetic and metaphor as well as a cultural value. Come discover the symbolism of the seasons and learn the aesthetics of savoring nature at this exhibit:
