Art Exhibit at the Library

In Washington  | Art Exhibit  | Newsletter

The Gibbs Library is proud to present an exhibit a selection of 18th and 19th century lithographs depicting events of Revolutionary and Civil War, from the collection of Lennie Weiner, Washington resident, at the Gibbs Library from May 4 through July 3, 2017.

The exhibit includes two historical figures, George Washington and Israel Putnam. both of whom had a significant influence on the history on our town.  At one time, the town of Washington was called Putnam honoring this Revolutionary War hero.  In 1825 the name of the town was changed to honor Washington.  The exhibit also includes books on the history of American Printmaking, Currier and Ives and the Kellogg brothers of Connecticut.
