Opening Night at The Museum
Friday, September 16, 2022
On Friday, September 16th at 4pm we hope you will join us as we formally open the exhibition: “The Artwork of Jacob Cist: Window into a Renaissance Man”. This exhibition features portraits, nature drawings, blueprints, sketches, works of the human form, and invention designs from Wilkes-Barre’s own botanist/inventor/postmaster/scientist/architect/fossil collector Jacob Cist.
Have a glass of wine as you view the works of the man who was having his studies published in French academic journals, all the while marketing the newly discovered Anthracite coal here at home. A man who lived more in 43 years than the vast majority of folks live in a lifetime.
The opening will run from 4pm-7pm and is free to all. The three other exhibitions of the LCHS Museum will be open for viewing as well, and staff will be on hand to answer questions. If your group or business has an interest in a private tour of the museum prior to the opening, call 570-823-6244 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
