Forty of Something: Collections from our community
In conjunction with the 40th Juried Exhibition The Lyndon House Arts Center will host a year long, rotating exhibition, “40 OF SOMETHING”, showcasing varied collections, each consisting of 40 items, to commemorate the center’s 40th year of bringing the arts to Athens.
From vintage eyeglasses to vinyl records, postage stamps to teapots, Beanie Babies to glass menageries, an array of collections will be featured from the Athens community. These accumulations will be exhibited in the Lyndon House Art Center’s front lobby glass display cases and will rotate monthly. The collections will offer a sneak peek into the interests of our fellow Athenians. What are we collecting? What are we holding on to/ holding dear?
“40 OF SOMETHING” aims to represent different individuals from all walks of life: artists, writers, scientists, athletes and so-on. The collections will span the gamut offering 40 of something for everyone.
