New Exhibit Labels and Wall Panels to be Installed

Thanks to the support of the Arlington Cultural Council, the Dallin Museum is finishing the production of beautiful, full-color interpretive panels for the Museum’s front hall and new exhibit labels throughout the galleries. These new resources vastly improve our ability to provide our visitors with meaningful experiences that enhance their appreciation of Cyrus Dallin’s art. Here’s a sneak preview of our Dallin timeline designed by Museum Trustee and artist Chris Costello.

Restoration of the Jefferson Cutter House is Complete

The Cyrus Dallin Art Museum and the Town of Arlington applied to and received a grant of $65,000 from the Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund (MPPF) for a $200,000 exterior restoration¬†of the Jefferson Cutter House. The MPPF grant program is administered through the Massachusetts Historical Commission and is designed to preserve historically significant buildings owned by non-profits and municipalities. It’s a competitive grant program and we are delighted to be undertaking this much needed work on the Jefferson Cutter House.

The scope of work included a new roof and gutters as well as restoration of the windows, doors, exterior cladding and trim. A detailed description of this project with photos can be found at YourArlington.com.
