Visit the New Danforth Museum Wednesday at 12 PM


A Docent Led Visit to the New
DANFORTH MUSEUM
in Framingham
Wednesday, May 24th, at 12 PM

Registration Limit:  12
When limit is reached, registrants will be placed on a waiting list and automatically registered if there's a cancellation.*


 

For those who have already been to the Danforth Museum in downtown Framingham, this visit will be a new experience.  Now located in the Jonathan Maynard Building (1915) on the historic Framingham Village Green, the museum has a permanent collection and stages special exhibitions, also.  The current show, "Visionary Boston," offers a closer look at the work of three artists and their contemporaries who were a part of defining the Boston art world mid-century, who worked fervently to translate their visions into something tangible, and whose works reflect their mutual influences—both historical and contemporary. 
After viewing the exhibition, we will have time to see the permanent collection and the Meta Warrick Fuller Special Collection.  Fuller was an African-American sculptor (1877-1968) who lived in Framingham. She was a member of the Harlem Renaissance, known for her portrayal of the African-American experience.
