Summer Project 2017 - Good Libations
Summer is a great time to quench your thirst! The days are longer, hotter and more active. This is the perfect time to find a shady spot and enjoy something cold to drink.
Central Pennsylvania has become home to a growing selection of craft breweries, distilleries and wineries with each showcasing their variety of flavors and styles. That is why we have chosen “Libations” to be the theme for our 5th annual summer museum project during the months of June and July, 2017. Plans include community events, workshops, libation tours, art shows and educational programs.
In the Windows Gallery, the museum will exhibit “Good Libations”, a visual art exhibit of photographs by local photographers from our Artist Registry. Photographers will be on location prior to the exhibition taking photographs of people, places and things related to the process of creating local libations. Several images from each establishment will then be on display in the Windows Gallery at the Bellefonte Art Museum for Centre County during the months of June and July. These images along with artifacts, equipment, ingredients and other objects on loan from local establishments will highlight the process of brewing or distilling. Our intent is to provide viewers with a better knowledge of the process and introduce them to a sample of what is created right here in Happy Valley!
A very popular part of the museum’s summer project are the many events planned throughout the community which expand on the subject. This year is no exception: members will be invited to tour several of our local breweries, distilleries and wineries, learn tips and techniques to brewing your own beer at home, sip and paint at a local winery, spend an evening with a sommelier and find out what food pairs well with some of your favorite wines, experience a night in Bavaria with German beer and food, along with many more events and tours!
In years past, the museum’s summer projects have included: Waterways of Central Pennsylvania, Food Glorious Food, International Happy Valley, and Gardens of Central Pennsylvania.
Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays 12:00 to 4:30 p.m. Or By Appointment
