In 2011, the Monson Arts Council received a gift of a collection of art from the Dr. Jean Porwoll estate. This collection has been expanded by other donations received throughout the years. The MAC Art Show/Museum Committee has been refurbishing many of the works of art in the past year, with support from funds donated in memory of Sylvia Pyzocha by many of her friends, and a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Our first Museum event offered a chance for people to experience some of this diverse collection of art and at the same time to take a walk inside the House of Art and see our refurbished galleries, with donations from the Town of Monson, the Monson Savings Bank , the Grace Makepeace Trust, and additional anonymous individuals.
The Monson Museum of Art will be open in the House of Art at various times throughout the year rotating our collection. There will be a new display of our collection with each opening. Please check our What’s Happening and Events page for upcoming viewings.
