Massillon Museum

“A Century of Sisterhood”

One hundred years of Massillon Woman’s Club history will be on display at the Massillon Museum this month. The exhibit “A Century of Sisterhood: A History of Massillon Woman’s Club” will open May 17 in the Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery and run through June 23. The collection is expected to include between 40 and 50 pieces, mostly photographs.

Time to party

The Massillon Museum once again is hosting its annual island party as a thank you to city residents. This year’s event is scheduled for 6 to 11 p.m. July 20 outside the museum and will feature a pig roast and entertainment from the Jackson High School Steel Drum Band and reggae group Carlos Jones and the P.L.U.S. Band.

Party Gras—Party Deux

Lots of people were loud in the library at the Massillon Public Library’s “Party Gras—Part Deux,” in February. Guests enjoyed refreshments from the bayou buffet and gator bite punch bucket while listening to the Zydeco Kings and competing for prize baskets in a scavenger hunt throughout the main floor of the library.

Culture shot: abstract art and the blind

How do you explain what abstract art looks like … to a blind person? That’s the concept behind the latest exhibit at the Massillon Museum: Blind Spot: A Matter of Perception (through May 23). Ten abstract paintings from the museum’s collection have been made accessible to those with blindness or low vision for the first time, thanks to an inventive, multisensory experience.

Last Look: A Muse

This time lapse photo of the ferris wheel was taken at the Olde Canal Days Festival in 2008. It was then copied, flipped and the left one was converted to black and white. It was in the 2008 artists exhibition at the Massillon Museum.
