Preparing for Upcoming Exhibition

"Home Is Where the Art Is", an exhibition of decorative arts from the collections, will open on Friday, June 19, 2009 in the Moreland Gallery at the Benton County Historical Museum.

Joyce Nesson, at left, is our Tuesday front desk volunteer. She also helps Mark Tolonen, exhibitions curator, prepare objects for exhibition like this wood chair with inlay from Damascus, Syria from the Horner Collection. The chair dates from the early 20th century. Other objects in the exhibition include a Persian-influenced spoon and brass bowl. Come and see these beautiful objects when they go on display! The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. Admission is free!
