Hello Historical Society members and supporters. Unfortunately the museum could not be opened this season due to the pandemic so we are working to bring the exhibits to you!
Volunteers at the society have been working hard to republish previous newsletter articles to the web site and now we have gone a step further and created an online exhibit experience.
Our first installment is titled “Made in America: The Folk Art of Coverlets.” This exhibit was curated by Ann Galonska and Peggy Church as part of the 2010 museum season. https://mansfieldct-history.org/exhibit-coverlet-2/
The format is a little bit different from our normal site content. The exhibit takes up the full width of the page in order to maximize the size of its images. If you would like to see even more detail of each image, just click on it and it will expand to fill your web browser. Also beware that you navigate the exhibit using the large green buttons at both the top and bottom of the page.
We hope you enjoy revisiting this exhibit and we look forward to any feed back you may have. Please feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
Thank you and stay well.
Your friends at the Mansfield Historical Society.
