Help the Somerville Museum fundraise for our Access for All & More Campaign which supports making our 100-year old building more accessible to the community. This event is also celebrating the opening of our next exhibition, Penny Chronicles and the Stories They Tell. Curated by David Guss, this exhibition is a history of Somerville through the medium of the vintage postcard.
There will be live music, food, local artwork, raffles, and games!
Music: Jan Marie and the Mean Reds, Raynel Shepard & the Joe Reid Trio, Rook Murao and local DJs, Honk! with Ghost Town
Food: There will be food and drinks available for purchase from Winter Hill Brewing, Machu Picchu, and Christine's Cotton Candy!
Raffle + Art Sale: We have some great raffle prizes including gift cards to Spindler Confectioners and annual memberships to LegoLand (to name a few)! We're also organizing an art sale by local artists. So, there will be plenty of opportunities to support your neighborhood museum, local businesses, and artists.
