In honor of the Concord Free Public Library’s 150th Anniversary, the Concord Museum, the Concord Free Public Library, and the Concord Free Public Library Corporation’s William Munroe Special Collections have collaborated on a special exhibition featuring the Library’s art collection. Featured objects include paintings by Washington Allston, N.C. Wyeth, May Alcott Nieriker, Charles Hovey Pepper, Alicia Keyes, and Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts, among other artists, as well as sculptures depicting noted Concord authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and Louisa May Alcott.


The exhibition also highlights Concord’s artist communities, local art collectors, the history of institutions promoting public access to works of art, and the stories of specific artists who have lived and worked in Concord.

A variety of public programs exploring Concord’s art and history will be presented at both the Museum and the Concord Free Public Library. See the Calendar for program information.


A Perpetual Invitation: 150 Years of Art at the Concord Free Public Library will be on view at the Concord Museum through September 4, 2023.
