Project Description

What do you want YOUR exhibit to be?

People’s Choice Exhibit

July 3 through November 3
Parmelee and Limric Galleries

This pandemic has wreaked havoc on our exhibition schedule, making it impossible to secure loans, or to properly uninstall and prepare galleries. Therefore, we’re going to let YOU decide the objects in our next exhibit. Our Collections Manager has come up with a list of interesting objects in storage that deserve a little time in the galleries.

Objects are powerful tools – touchstones filled with meanings and connection – that help a community understand its sense of place and future direction. Of the 40,000 objects in Bennington Museum’s collection, only a fraction are on view at any point.  Through online voting, hundreds of people picked from over 250 objects in five categories to determine the “winners” for viewing here.

Some of the runners up are also displayed to give you a better idea of the scope and breadth of our collections. And finally, for fun, we asked you to take a look at everything and vote on your very favorite object each week. From these favorite choices, you can now vote on the Grand Champion HERE!
