Signs of the Times: Self-guided Tour

When the Attleboro Arts Museum opened its doors in 1923 several area residents supported the organization by gifting fine art, memorabilia and items of aesthetic and historical interest.  These donations came to form the majority of the museum’s permanent collection. 

Today, thanks to funding from a Commonwealth Places COVID-19 Response Round: Resurgent Places grant from MassDevelopment, selections from the permanent collection are on view in a unique exhibition entitled Signs of the Times. This meandering display of art features replicas of permanent collection works imprinted on banners that are attached to downtown Attleboro’s light poles.  Signs of the Times is a coronavirus-safe way for participants to experience art and gain exposure to Attleboro’s downtown restaurants, businesses and attractions.  

You can learn about the work on view by participating in a complimentary self-guided tour. Let’s get started!
