Longtime followers of our oral history series will likely recognize the name “Artemisia Club” as it has come up several times. This week, Ivy Ringstrom gives us the story of that organization, as well as other details of her life. Take a listen here!
Our renovations are taking longer than we thought! Unfortunately, that means we will be closed today, Saturday, and Sunday (March 19-21) The museum will reopen on Tuesday, March 23rd at 10am. Sorry for any inconvenience!
