Exhibit  2020

Each year a new exhibit is created and displayed in the Jamestown Musuem. The planned Summer 2020 exhibit in the Jamestown Historical Society Museum at 92 Narragansett Avenue was to showcase The Art of Jamestown. The intent was to display original artwork from our collection curated by Jamestown artisit Peter Marcus. Because we were unable to open the museum summer 2020 you can view the exhibit HERE.
