The museum will be raffling a Sam Iddings painting, “Sunday in the Sun,” during September. Tickets are one for $5 or five for $20,and must be purchased in person at the museum. The winner will be drawn on October 1st by museum staff.
“The painting beautifully captures the chill of a winter day,” said Mikayla Larrow, Executive Director. “It would be a lovely addition to anyone’s home collection.” Currently the painting is displayed behind the museum’s front counter. The public is invited to view the painting during museum hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 1-5pm.
All the money raised from the month long raffle will benefit the museum’s education department, which puts on various programs through the year. “One of the greatest things about the museum’s mission is that we recognize the importance of future generations. By being able to offer our programs, like Tidbit, we’re able to make that mission point a reality. ”Said Larrow. According to Larrow the painting was generously donated by museum member Linda Fauth to be raffled for this purpose.
“Education is the cornerstone of what we do here at the museum,” said Jessica Salzman, Collections Manager. “Whether it is through exhibits or programming, we want to share the stories of Sheridan. Fundraisers like this help us put on educational programming. The community support means a lot to us.”
The winner of the painting will need to be able to pick up the painting from the museum. Due to various factors the painting will not be shipped.
