You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This November 29 join us for #GivingTuesday. It’s a simple idea. Find a way to give – whether it’s a donation, some of your time, a gift or the power of your voice in your local community.
Here at the Attleboro Arts Museum we are extending the Tuesdays in which you can give with #AAMGivingTuesdays through the month of December. Wrap up 2016 by sharing how you have given to the Museum.
Trees, Lights & Symbols of the Season.
From November 17th – December 15th, 2016 the Museum will exhibit artful Christmas trees, wreaths, Hanukkah menorahs and Kwanzaa kinaras created and decorated by volunteer artists. These items take a traditional holiday focal point to an entirely different level. All works will be raffled off to support exhibitions and arts programming at the Museum.
