An Exhibition at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Partnership with the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Greater Attleboro

Exhibition Dates: February 15th – 21st, 2020

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15th from 2-4pm. Free and open to all. Reception reservations are requested, but not required, by February 14th, 2020. Call 508-222-2644 x10 or email:

Segments of the exhibition will remain on view during the City of Attleboro’s Winter Night Festival on Saturday, February 22nd from 4 – 7:30pm. Free and open to all.


The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life is a fundraising event where members of a team take turns walking around a track or designated path. All Relay for Life events are staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 20 countries. 2020 marks Relay for Life’s 35th anniversary.

A Relay for Life typically spans from 6-24 hours in length. Participants rotate, walking throughout the event, to signify that cancer never sleeps. Everyone is welcome to join a Relay for Life by starting their own team or joining an existing one.  Proceeds from all Relays help the American Cancer Society lead the fight for a world without cancer. 

When you attend a Relay event, you’ll see volumes of paper luminarias decorated with names and sometimes messages to the people they’re dedicated to. After dark, each luminaria is lit in remembrance of a life touched by cancer.

When you attend a Relay event, you’ll see volumes of paper luminarias.

Luminaria – An Exhibition at the Attleboro Arts Museum

In 2020 the Attleboro Arts Museum is partnering with organizers of Relay for Life of Greater Attleboro – a local Relay that includes several hundred individuals with 65+ teams.  Greater Attleboro’s Relay brings in participants from Attleboro, North Attleboro, Norton, Plainville and Rehoboth, among other towns and cities.  2020 will commemorate Relay for Life of Greater Attleboro’s 22nd year.   The event will be held on June 12th -13th, 2020 at Norton High School, in Norton, MA.

To help spread the word about this important cause and Relay, the Attleboro Arts Museum will exhibit original, “artful” luminaria, created by artists in their own style and chosen medium. The exhibition, entitled Luminaria, will shine a light on the mission of the American Cancer Society, the strength of community collaboration, and the remarkable power of artistic expression.

Collection and Contemporary Portraits

Exhibition: February 15th – 29th, 2020

During the early years of the Attleboro Arts Museum several area residents supported the organization by gifting fine art and objects. These pieces have been cared for over time and selections are presented in an annual winter exhibition. 

From February 15th – 29th, 2020 the Museum presents Character Development – an exhibition of portraits from the Attleboro Arts Museum’s collection and companion contemporary works.

Sixteen artists working in a variety of mediums were invited to chose one portrait from a subset of the Museum’s permanent collection.  They were asked to visually respond to their selected work and encouraged to use their personal slant and style to create a new work that is inspired by, or reflects, the Museum holding.  The results were not designed to be replicas of permanent collection portraits – they are derivative works that express the voice of a contemporary artist.
