Animas Museum: Exhibits & Presention(s)
For 2013 our local history museum will again offer interesting and educational exhibits related to the area's history during its formative years. There will be 3 special stations to visit, allowing for small group interaction (not a set big presentation time). The theme will be death and dying Victorian style and will be called "An Afternoon of Mourning". There will be a hairwork demo, exploration of funerary art symbolism and one additional element on the topic.
When: Saturday, Oct. 13, 2011, 1:00pm - 4:00pm.
Where: The Animas Museum, 3065 W. 2nd Ave., Durango. Rather than driving, consider using the free and convenient city trolley service from downtown.
Price: $4 museum admission fee, no charge for the special presentation.
