The Art of the Artifact:
Art Inspired by the Wenham Museum Collection
May 30 – August 24
What happens when artists of today are inspired by the toys, textiles, and trends of yesteryear? Come and find out at the Wenham Museum! Nine New England artists have taken a close look at the huge collection of vintage and antique toys and other artifacts at the museum and have been inspired to create bright, brilliant (and sometimes very funny) new art! Kids and adults will be inspired to make their own art right in the gallery and climb into a life–size version of a toy that inspired the art.
Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days: Summer Fashions
May 12 – September 14
After the winter we just had here in New England, we are thrilled at the prospect of those hot summer days! To celebrate their arrival, we have chosen a selection of summer fashions from our collection. Spanning over a century, from delicate sprigged muslins to funky jumpsuits, skorts and summery shoes we'll explore how summer wear has changed over the years. And -- a new feature for our fashion and textile gallery -- we are including doll clothes, many of which have never been on display before!
