West District School Exhibit of Student Art
April 24th to June 5th
This exhibit will feature West District's second grade artists' drawings of bears in pattern sweaters. It will also include special guest artists, West District fourth graders' mini frosty landscapes. As usual, the Museum will be open for the length of this exhibit on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2-4 pm.
Work on the Addition Begins!
On March 15th after several years of planning and fundraising, we broke ground on the much-needed addition to our historic building at 15 School Street, Unionville. We are very excited that work has begun. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
The addition will make our museum more accessible and allow us to expand our programs and events. The Museum Board is grateful to our many members and donors, businesses and civic organizations for their generous donations and commitment to our mission to preserve Unionville’s history and make it come alive for all. We are also grateful to the Town of Farmington for their ongoing support and partnership.
CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant from CT Humanities
The Museum is happy to announce that we received $6,500 in funding from CT Humanities which will enable us to update our exhibit space with an A/V system and new display cases, develop new marketing materials and develop products to sell through our Museum Store. Our goals are to increase and diversify our audience and increase our sources of revenue.
CT Humanities is a statewide nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Our grant is part of $30.7 million allocated by the CT General Assembly and approved by Governor Lamont to support arts, humanities and and cultural non profits through CT Humanities over the next two years.
Check out the new items we added to the Museum Store in 2021 - an ornament of the Unionville Depot and note cards with scenes of Unionville in days gone by. All of the items in the Museum Store are available on line and at the Museum during exhibit hours.
