The Monson Museum of Art

 

Monson Arts Council is taking our first public step to introduce our community to The Monson Museum of Art.

 

In 2011, the Monson Arts Council received a gift of a collection of art from the Dr. Jean Porwoll estate. This collection has been expanded by other donations received throughout the years.  The MAC Art Show/Museum Committee has been refurbishing many of the works of art in the past year, with support from funds donated in memory of Sylvia Pyzocha by many of her friends, and a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

 

Our first Museum event offers a chance for people to experience some of this diverse collection of art and at the same time to take a walk inside the House of Art and see our refurbished galleries,  with donations from the Town of Monson, the Monson Savings Bank , the Grace Makepeace Trust, and additional anonymous individuals. 

 

We hope you will visit our new art museum as we show off some great art work and our new galleries on Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24 from Noon – 5pm at 200 Main Street. We will be holding a reception both days and everyone is welcome to attend! The newly renamed galleries will be dedicated on Saturday, October 23 at 2pm.

Art Show Committee Mission Statement

The goal of the Art Show Committee is to provide a venue in the Town of Monson for artists, from throughout New England and beyond, who produce quality art in a variety of media, to exhibit and sell their work to a regional audience. The Committee will seek to engage the residents and businesses of Monson in its work to enhance the sense of community pride and foster a greater appreciation of the visual arts. By doing so, the Monson Arts Council will increasingly become recognized as a catalyst for the arts in the region. Unanimously approved 8/3/09
