"Darien: 1925-1950 ~ Golden Age of Art and Design"

Beginning with Darien's Guild of the Seven Arts, the second earliest art colony formed in New England, this show tells the story of how New York's new media of radios, slick magazines, and Victrolas created a huge demand for artists, how many of these artists flocked to live and work in Darien, and how they changed our town. Running now through September 11, 2016, 12-5pm on Tuesday to Thursday & Sundays from 12-3pm. The price of general admission is a non-member donation of $5.00
