The Florence Griswold Museum From A to Z

February 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm


The history and future of the Florence Grisworld Museum with David D.J. Rau, Director of Education & Outreach.

The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme offers year-round exhibitions of American art and interprets the historic Florence Griswold House, a boardinghouse for artists, circa 1910. The 12-acres of gardens and grounds along the Lieutenant River provides a place of natural beauty that inspired the original painters of the Lyme Art Colony as well as those of today.  The Museum has just opened its Artists’ Trail, a wonder for nature lovers. Come learn about the history of the Museum as well as all the innovative exhibitions and events in store for 2020 on Tuesday, February 11 at 7 p.m. at the Essex Library.

David Rau has been the Director of Education & Outreach at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme since 1998.  Most recently, Rau played a key role in the reinterpretation of the Griswold House as a boardinghouse for the Lyme Art Colony as well as the Museum’s new triad of on-line learning resources.

This talk is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
