The New England Carousel Museum is hosting a new series, Museum After Hours that will be held on the first Thursday of each month in 2017. Each month there will be a different educational presentations or workshop. The public is invited to join scholars and experts to learn about the art and history of carousels, the carvers, the artists, and your favorite carousels.
To kick off this series, on April 6, the program will focus on Tim Murphy who created some of Connecticut’s favorite carousels at his shop in the Savin Rock district of West Haven, CT. This program will take a close look at some of his creations including the Lighthouse Point Park and Lake Compounce carousels. The highlight of this program is Museum Subject Specialist, Cate Mahoney who will enthusiastically share her knowledge on this manufacturer and carver, and his magnificent carousels.
Museum After Hours will be held from 6:30-7:30 PM with a wine and cheese reception taking place 6:00-6:30 PM. Admission to this series is included with general admission, and as always museum members are free.
