Come join us as we hear Marnie Albers, curator of the dolls at the Chagrin Falls Historical Society, talk about nine marionettes that were made by a group of young mothers from Federated Church back in the 1950s!
We will learn how these Marionettes came to be, who made them, and how they were used. Also, how much work it was to clean them up. It’s a very interesting story you won’t want to miss!
We will have some finger sandwiches and pastries along with tea, of course.
After Marnie’s presentation, we will have a tour of the museum. You will see painter Max Barnard’s work in the Bo Burr Community Room where we will have our presentation. Max Barnard completed over 2,000 works over a nearly 30-year period, using mostly house paint! At the same time, we’ll be able to experience their featured exhibit, The Wars through Their Eyes: Chagrin Valley Veterans.
