The Golden Jubilee Gala will be unlike any other celebration we’ve hosted before at the Herreshoff Marine Museum. The Gala will be a multi-part birthday party on the Herreshoff Marine Museum campus in Bristol, Rhode Island designed to channel the spirit of fun and celebration. The festivities kick off with a spectacular art show in Building 26 featuring artists Alison Langley and Russ Kramer where we will announce the second recipient of the Rebecca “Becky” Chase Herreshoff Award. Then a parade down historical Burnside Street to the waterfront to continue the party with live music, bars and sensational paella. Be the first to see the unveiling of the Resolute Syndicate Monument. No birthday party is complete without cake! Dance the night away under the stars as we look forward to another 50 years of innovation.
Art show preview begins on Thursday at 3:30pm in Building 26. Prints and Originals will be on sale to benefit the Museum. Gallery will be open October 1st through the 2nd and is included in Museum Admission. Click here to view the art for sale.
