May Events At The Franklin Historical Museum

ArtWeek continues at the Franklin Historical Museum with the last 3 performances and presentations, as we proudly participate in this year’s state wide event sponsored by the Mass Cultural Council.

Enjoy a delightful firsthand account of various exploits and travel misadventures abroad with musical conductor and Franklin resident Jon Mitchell’s humorous presentation ‘NOW YOU CAN TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES’ – Anecdotes of an American Conductor in Europe. A slide presentation and original professional recordings highlight this light-hearted musical and visual presentation. Bring your sense of humor Thursday evening, May 3 at 6:30 PM.

NOTABLE BLEND, a women’s barbershop chorus, performs Saturday, May 5 at Noon. You’ll love the sounds of this a cappella group as you learn about 4 part harmony and experience their shared passion for singing. This performance is one of two by Notable Blend as part of ArtWeek. They’ll perform a second show later in the afternoon at the Franklin Public Library. This performance is supported by a grant from the Franklin Cultural Council.

Sunday, May 6 is an opportunity to experience KAI OLSSON ART AND MUSIC. Kai’s original art and original music will be combined in this presentation starting at 1:00 PM. View his mixed media acrylics, water colors and pencil sketches of landscapes, nature, portraits and surreal art. Listen to original recordings as well as live guitar and vocal performances. This event is supported by a grant from the Franklin Cultural Council.

Our Second Sunday Speaker Series continues on May 13 with noted local historian and author JAMES C. JOHNSTON JR. We are pleased to have Jim speak on the topic of the OLIVER POND HOUSE IN CONTEXT, its story and its history. Lifelong Franklin resident, Jim’s roots in Franklin go very deep. Long time public official, former Franklin High School history teacher and owner of Johnston Antiques, Rare Coins and Appraisal Service, Jim is an interesting and entertaining speaker. Don’t miss this chance to hear him speak on the topic of the historic Oliver Pond Home that he has lived in all his life. The presentation begins at 1:15 PM.

Coming in June, our Summer Bridal Gown Exhibit!

The museum is open Saturday mornings 10 AM-1 PM, Sunday afternoons 1 PM-4 PM and Thursday evenings 5 PM-8 PM. We’re located at 80 West Central Street, admission is always free and we’re wheelchair accessible.
