Your Town, Your Story, Your Museum!
Art Show & Fundraiser

Time and Again

Don't miss the opportunity to see our special art show and sale benefiting the Society, which runs February 1 until February 14.

It's a show celebrating 200 years of Darien's independence and 100 years of Women's Suffrage and all the pieces reflect that theme. If you haven't yet seen it, hurry (and tell your friends!) because the art is selling at a very good clip.

There will be a Sip & Collage on February 13 at 7 p.m. Please call us at 203.655.9233 to reserve a spot.
