2016 was a great year at Fenimore Art Museum with record-breaking attendance, but you will not want to miss the exciting lineup of exhibits that 2017 has in store. The April 1, 2017 opening will kick-off a season filled with a wide-range of engaging exhibitions including works by Maurice Sendak, illustrator of Where the Wild Things Are, Andrew and Victoria Wyeth in honor of Andrew Wyeth’s 100th birthday, a spectacular collection of ice skating art, costumes, and memorabilia from the personal collection of Olympic gold-medalist and ice skating commentator Dick Button, and many more. We also have a new installation featuring pieces from our Thaw Collection of American Indian Art which never disappoints. Anyone visiting the museum will find something fascinating. This summer, in The Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater, the Fenimore’s Glimmer Globe Theater troupe will be producing William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The 2017 calendar is very strong and reflects a growing understanding of audience needs and wants, and our museum’s potential and capability. We are also proud to present our new logo and branding initiative which focuses on the “more” in Fenimore, and that’s exactly what you’ll find here — “more art, more culture, more discovery.”
We look forward to seeing you all in Cooperstown and hope you will enjoy all we have to offer.
