The Geneva History Museum has been working on several grant projects during COVID closure with a goal to reopen Tuesday, July 6, with FREE admission throughout the remainder of 2021.
Phase II of the Main Gallery, “Geneva’s Story” is almost completed with two new chapters on “Community Service” and “Entertainment,” as well as more artifacts and a new Story Booth. The Gift Shop has also been redesigned and new inventory is on its way.
Coming mid-June, “Dear Geneva, With Love,” a public art engagement will be hosted at the Geneva History Museum in conjunction with Geneva artist, Catherine Tilly. “Dear Geneva” is a conversation between community members, businesses, and visitors — on a temporary art wall at the north end of the museum as well as on postcards scattered throughout the city.
This project allows each of us to tell a small part of the larger Geneva story by sharing what we’ve learned and what we love about this town. As the postcards are shared, curated, collected and displayed, our “love letter” to Geneva will unfold and emerge, giving us the opportunity to rediscover what shapes and defines us in these historic times.
“Dear Geneva, With Love” merchandise will also be available for sale in the Museum’s Gift Shop. Special thanks to the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva for the use of their lot and to Hogan Design and Construction for agreeing to build the wall.
