Mystery and music at Fenimore museum

--
Cooperstown Crier

---- — An evening of live-action museum theater will return to the Fenimore Art Museum on Saturday, Nov. 10. 

Night at Our Museum opens the museum doors to the community from 6 to 8:30 p.m. This year’s theme, “Foodways,” explores rural food production through story time, theater and music. Community groups will lead crafts and activities.   

Visitors help solve the mystery of a “stolen” artifact in a new who-dun-it museum theater event. They’ll meet characters who span 300 years of history and see figures from the museum’s paintings come alive to help find the missing artifact.

An exclusive performance by the local acoustic duo Will & Will will highlight the evening. Will Walker and Will Green entertain and inspire folks young and old to dance, laugh and smile to traditional children’s classics, according to a media release from the museum.

Snacks and drinks will be available. The cost is $7 for ages 13 and up; $5 for New York State Historical Association members and free for children 12 and younger. No reservations are necessary. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. For more information visit FenimoreArtMuseum.org or call 547-1453.

This event is being planned in large part by students at the Cooperstown Graduate Program. Proceeds benefit the museum’s education department.
