Travelscapes: Jon McDonald Abroad

February 25, 2022 - August 14, 2022

Artist Jon McDonald grew up in Grand Haven, but his talents with watercolor and oil paints took him around the world. This exhibition allows visitors to follow along as McDonald shares how his early life in the Tri-Cities affected his experiences of these spectacular destinations abroad. 

Classroom Curators - Early English Colonies

February 8, 2022 - June 1, 2022

This is the first iteration of the "Classroom Curators" project, a collaboration between the TCHM and area intermediate/secondary schools. Students curate an exhibition highlighting a subject they are learning about in school, with museum staff assisting and installing the exhibit. This exhibit covers the three Early English colonies of Roanoke, Jamestown, and Plymouth. It was curated by two 5th grade classes at White Pines Intermediate School.
