Opening Reception: Caring Counts & LuminArtz
June 24, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The exhibition Caring Counts: Centuries in the Making by artist Leslie Lyman opens at the Wenham Museum today!
Artist Leslie Lyman’s recent sculptural piece is about the often unnoticed, but physically and emotionally difficult, work of caring for others–work that is usually performed by women. Using a handmade account book, which visitors will be able to touch and read, she has documented these seemingly innumerable tasks. The display will be accompanied by still photographs that reference caregiver’s efforts on behalf of those they love, and objects from the Wenham Museum’s own collection that support the history of care provided by women. Hands-on components will allow visitors to touch some the tools that have been used to provide care.
Join us for an opening reception on Friday, June 24, 2022 starting at 7:30 p.m. A $10 Suggested Donation is requested at the door and a cash bar and light refreshments will be available.
This opening reception will also feature a special, live, outdoor video art installation by LuminArtz beginning at 8:30 p.m. This installation will be projected on the exterior of the Wenham Museum’s building and feature Leslie Lyman’s work as reimagined by artist Pamela Hersch.
During the Opening Reception, guests can also view the Caring Counts exhibition in the museum’s galleries.
