Artists & Authors

The exhibit will also explored how Cornwall maintained a sense of self and community with the influx of many cultural producers, such as Lewis Gannett and James Thurber, during the 20th century and its influence on these creators of culture and artistic trends in America.

This exhibit ran from June 25th through October 31st.
