A Special Thank-You
As we welcome a new month, we sincerely hope you continue to stay well and safe. We are grateful to everyone on the frontline of this pandemic, and are reminded not to take opportunities for personal connections for granted. Above, Free Interpretation of Plant Forms by Harry Bertoia shines blue as a tribute to everyone working to keep us safe.
We also extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported the museum through sustaining a membership or making a donation. Your generosity keeps Woodmere shining.
We are working to bring more digital offerings to you during this time. Thank you and stay tuned!
