Local residents contribute to Remembering War, 1775 to the Present
The Putnam History Museum will present a new exhibition opening on First Friday, a town-wide celebration of the arts, alongside other openings at the Marina Gallery and Gallery 66 NY.
Inspired by a 1940s wartime scrapbook, Remembering War, 1775 to the Present explores how local residents have related to war over time. Curator Trudie A. Grace mined the collections of the museum and members of the community to assemble an exhibit that consists of wartime items contributed by veterans and their families, avid collectors of wartime and soldier memorabilia, and artwork created by artists reflecting upon their own relationship with war.
The exhibit opens Friday, May 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the museum, located at 63 Chestnut St. in Cold Spring. RSVP by May 1 to [email protected] or call 845-265-4010. For further information on upcoming events, visit putnamhistorymuseum.org.
