Returning Home: Additions to the Demuth Museum Collection

Opening Reception: Friday, April 28, 5-8pm
Demuth Museum

Featuring three new additions to the permanent Demuth collection, this exhibit will explore not only the museum's permanent collection, but also other Demuth works that have returned to Lancaster County. Borrowing form local private collections will enhance our understanding of Demuth's watercolor works and give the public an opportunity to see works that have not been in Lancaster for decades.
