ELKHART – “A community is the sum of its shared history, so in an age when information is created, shared, has trended and is forgotten in a matter of minutes, museums represent something different.
The museum is renewing its efforts to preserve and promote local history and the arts when it opens its doors for the 2016 season at 7 p.m. April 1 with a free concert underwritten by 1st Source Bank.
The concert will feature a 1938 Baldwin baby grand piano the Deputy family recently gifted to the museum. The instrument resided in the mansion previously when the Deputy family owned the home in the mid-20th century.
Chupp’s Piano of New Paris restored the baby grand, and company employees will perform at the concert.
The message of remembering the past is clearly resonating.
Last year, the organization reached 28,000 people between those who came in visited the campus’s three sites and individuals involved in outreach programs. The figure was up from 3,000 visitors six years ago…”
