Curator’s Talk

Stockbridge Library, Museum & Archives is proud to present an exhibiton 2019 Donations to the Museum & Archives.

On display are several of the donations to the Museum & Archives historical collections during the past year. These gifts range in size from single documents to multiple containers and vary in topic from art to commerce and from individual people to organizations. The unifying factor is that they all relate to Stockbridge.

One of the interesting things about this year’s donations is that many of them connect with other material in the Museum & Archives, giving a broader picture of life in town at different times. The memorabilia in the J. Murray Tracy Papers dovetails with both our World War II collection and the Williams High School Alumnae Records. Benjamin Eggleston’s painting, Youth, provides a clear example of the type of artwork discussed in the exhibit programs of the Stockbridge Casino Records.
The advertising items on display help us capture the businesses that have come and gone in the town while the documents, deeds, and letters describe the activities of local residents. Each donation helps paint a better picture of Stockbridge history.

Join us on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. in the Procter Gallery for a Curator’s Talk with Barbara Allen.
