Summer Soiree Banner flattenedJoin us for a Summer Soiree at the historic Whittemore Robbins House!

670 R Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, Mass.

Honoring Dr. Daniel J. Fairbanks, Associate Dean, College of Science and Health, Utah Valley University, professional artist, and certified forensic sculptor. Dr. Fairbanks meticulously restored Cyrus Dallin’s On the Warparth. The sculpture had been donated to the museum in badly damaged condition in 2007.

The Summer Soiree will raise crucial funds to address high-priority goals in the Dallin Museum’s new strategic plan, such as expanding education programs for the Arlington public schools. Proceeds will also provide much needed support for collections care, staffing, and operations.

Fundraiser Highlights:
♦ Unveiling of On the Warpath
♦ Violin performance by Dr. Donna Fairbanks, Chair, Department of Music, Utah Valley University
♦ Reminiscences from Museum founders James McGough and Stephen Gilligan
♦ Gourmet hors d’oeuvres provided by Menotomy Grill & Tavern and cash bar
♦ Silent auction featuring unique artworks and experiences with relevance to Dallin’s life and legacy. Generous donors to the silent auction include Ace Archers, Arts Emerson, Freedom Trail Foundation, Huntington Theatre Company, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Massachusetts Audubon Society, Off the Eaten Path, Pilgrim Hall Museum, Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, Plimoth Plantation, Truro Vineyards, and artists Chris Costello, Anne-Marie DeLaunay-Danizio, and Anne Sterling.
