Before & After;  The Story of a Small Town’s Artifacts & Their Conservation

We hope you will join us! Saturday, October 3rd, 11 am at the Williamstown Historical Museum for the opening of our exhibit: Before and After; The Story of a Small Town’s Artifacts and Their Conservation This exhibit was created by you and for you. Williamstown residents and friends donated the artifacts in this exhibit, voted at the 2014 Annual Town Meeting to have these artifacts conserved, and your interaction with these objects makes them meaningful. Materials donated over the years helped us build a narrative for the objects that allowed us to tell some of the stories of the people and places of our little town. You are an important part of that story. We hope you’ll come admire some of your work. The exhibit focuses on the objects that were conserved at the Williamstown Art Conservation Center using CPC funds. The Pine Cobble Seventh Graders (now eighth graders) contributed descriptive paragraphs detailing some of the objects. This exhibit couldn’t have been done without you. Thank you! We will have delicious treats for you upon your arrival. We look forward to seeing you next Saturday! For questions please email [email protected] or call...
