Our newest special exhibit “Streets, Blocks and Neighborhood” by Björn Sjögren is now on display in our first-floor gallery space. Sjögren’s creations, inspired by his experiences, are mingled with a type of Scandinavian design simplicity. To learn more about the artist visit his website. This Friday, Jan. 23 join us for Family Night. Kids can enjoy making a craft during this free event while the adults can take in the exhibit. Reservations are appreciated and can be made via email.
In the last months of 2014, the Museum made a call for donations to the Water Tower Fund that would take us from $70,000 to $100,000 by the start of 2015. With a matching gift campaign made possible by long-time Museum supporters and life trustees, Bo and Anita Hedfors, we did it! We thank our many donors for their support and generosity. With two-thirds of the total $150,000 needed to recreate the historic Andersonville Water Tower landmark secured, we can begin to set a timeline and develop plans for returning this beloved symbol to our skyline. We also want to express our gratitude to those who provided major gifts of $10,000 or more to the fund in 2014: Museum life trustees Ulla and Bertil Brunk, the Edith Marie Appleton Foundation by Museum trustee Albert Goodman, the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, and the Hedfors family. Want to be a part of the resurrection of the Andersonville Water Tower? You can donate to the specially created Water Tower Fund here.
