Happy Fall to all!
Happy Fall To all!! I hope each of you are healthy and are looking forward to a bright and colorful fall and holiday season.
The Robeson County History Museum is constantly in motion. The ROBESON COOKS exhibit was a successful and fun and nostalgic exhibit, looking back at the cooking utensils and cookbooks of our parents and/or grandparents. Now it is time to move forward with a new exhibit.
ART THROUGH THE AGES is our new, in-progress exhibit. RCHM is displaying art in many different forms throughout the museum. Some of the art is the work of artists of the past, some more contemporary artists. Most of the art on display is from the creative minds and hands of our Robesonian artists. There are some art pieces available for purchase and there are many art pieces that are on exhibit for us to look at and appreciate the creative spirit of the artist.
RCHM is always open to the public at no charge on Tuesday and Thursday 10:00 am-12 noon and Sunday 2-4 pm (except major holidays). The museum will also be open to visitors on Thursday evening, November 4, 2021 in correlation with the Main Street Art Stroll, 5:00 pm-7:30 pm. Also, mark your calendars for November 13, 2021. The Robeson County Arts Council is sponsoring the Handmade Holiday Bazaar outdoors at the Osterneck Auditorium on N. Chestnut Street from 11:00 am-4:00 pm. The museum will also be open for visitors during the bazaar. Please plan to visit the museum and see all the creativity of our county's artists.
The Robeson Art Guild, located at 109 West 9th Street, Lumberton, will also be open during the Art Stroll and the Holiday Bazaar to welcome visitors!
