Admission to the Bennington Museum is free from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 11. At 11 a.m. explore ‘Up Home: Hand-Colored Photographs by Susanne and Neil Rappaport.’ You can also try hand-coloring photographs between 1 and 4:30 p.m., to see how pictures take on a whole new dimension after being colored.
‘Color/Gesture: Early Works by Emily Mason’ opens at 3 p.m. in the Works on Paper Gallery. The show traces the development of the artist’s distinctive style of abstraction through works created in the 1950s and 1960s, and is on view through September 8.
Enjoy the opening of the Museum’s spring tale along the George Aiken Wildflower Trail between dawn and dusk. Create tissue paper flowers in the Grandma Moses Schoolhouse.
