Note from Our Director


Mid-summer has arrived, and the museum is in full swing. There is still time to make your reservations
for our Summer Social at the Middle Fork Barn on August 12. See details elsewhere on our website for
this extraordinary top-of-the-world site and a fun-filled evening with the ever-popular music of Ron
Short and the Possum Playboys.

The current exhibitions are not to be missed: The Best of Barter explorers the creative work of Barter’s
costume designers, from Shrek to Mary Poppins and more. Reviving the Thread is the current Cultural
Heritage Project exhibition that explores 20 th century quilts in an extraordinary display of color and fine
stitchery. Finally, Contemplating Character is on display for just a few more days through Sunday, July
30. A traveling exhibition, this important study of portraiture during the 18 th and 19 th century is
something unique to experience.

So, come visit your museum! It is open daily until 5:00 and until 8 p.m on Thursday. Admission remains
free for all.

With our best wishes,
Betsy K. White
