We had gorgeous weather on Town Day. Thank you for coming out to support the museum and our partners and shopping for unique items from local artisans and vendors at the Museum’s annual Art on the Green! during Arlington Town Day. Whittemore Park was filled with music, poetry, and beautiful hand-crafted goods and collectibles including paintings, prints, photographs, handmade soaps, clothing and jewelry, glass and pottery, letterpress stationery and more!
