Newton artists and authors visit the Jackson Homestead and the Durant-Kenrick House on Sunday, December 1 to show and sell their work as part of Museum Store Sunday. In addition, merchandise in the shops at each museum will be sold at a 20 percent discount. This special event is part of Museum Store Sunday, an initiative at more than 700 Museum Stores around the world.
The day's events include:
- Artists display their work at Jackson Homestead from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Authors visit from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
- At the Durant-Kenrick House from 10:30 a.m. to noon, join us for “Art, Spirituality and The Power of Creativity,” a discussion with Newton artists and authors about the spiritual tones that often guide their creativity. How do they combine personal expression with making a larger cultural statement in their work? What themes and values do they hope to communicate? Historic Newton partners with NewCity Church to host and moderate this inclusive conversation.
- From 1 to 3 p.m., the Durant-Kenrick House will feature local authors and artists, plus the MADE NEW Cafe + Shoppe carrying merchandise from Eurasia Coffee and Tea and CAUSEGEAR, MADE FREE, and Trades of Hope brands.
Explore the shops at both museums for Historic Newton’s ginger-pear jam, books about the Underground Railroad and abolition, history-themed toys, custom-made candles, and much more. Each purchase supports the mission and programs of Historic Newton. For more information, please call 617-796-1450.
Admission to both museums is free.
