Sense of Place

The project is a partnership between the Museum, the Public Art Committee, and local business and organizations. “We approached various property owners about the project, and all were keen to partner with us. We are thankful to our host sites and community members who shared stories and photographs, and provided a space for the storyboards,” notes Jennifer Fitzpatrick, Director of Cultural Services. Thanks to the Friends of the Museum & Gallery for sponsoring the project.

There are sixteen storyboards around the community, which provide a fun way for people to get out and explore their city.  Click below under Historic Stories to read some of these fascinating stories about the City.
