Coming soon to a theatre near you

We have been unusually busy this month with exhibits to install and lots of traffic through the doors. It is hard to believe the end of the year is right around the corner. However, we are excited that December and January will usher in two major upcoming exhibits; one featuring local paintings and one about the history of truck farming in Buffalo Grove.

The annual painting exhibit debuts December 1st. It highlights the work of the BG Park District’s adult painting class. All week, people have been dropping off their work for the show and I am thoroughly impressed with the quality and range of subjects. Showcasing the work of local talent and bringing a community together is definitely one of my favorite parts about working in museums.

Finally, we begin work on the truck farming exhibit in January and we are super jazzed about this one. It is not only going to discuss the history but also tie in green living. We are even trying to figure out how to get an old truck into the space. Stay tuned…
