As people are spending more time outside, the Michener Art Museum is delighted to “paint” Doylestown with reproductions of its artwork strategically placed throughout the town for a free outdoor exhibition, entitled Paint Dtown. This project, funded through the generosity of Art Bridges and fully supported by the Borough of Doylestown, was imagined to delight passersby with a source of inspiration and information at a time when many cultural institutions remain closed due to the pandemic. The Michener curatorial team carefully selected 16 works of art from its permanent collection to be reproduced and collaborated with other Museum departments to offer various ways to engage audiences. A digital map highlighting all locations and complete audio tour can be accessed through the Michener website or the Michener app. Social media enthusiasts can also share their experiences by posting a photo and tagging the Museum’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account.
The Michener Art Museum is located at 138 South Pine St., Doylestown, PA. The Museum is open Tuesday through Friday, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm; Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm and Sunday noon – 5:00 pm. For more information, visit MichenerArtMuseum.org or call 215.340.9800.
