See you in February!

New for the spring

The decorations have been removed but there is still much to see at the Hays-Heighe House! Our inaugural exhibit, Made by Hand, will be on display for only a few more weeks, so be sure to see it before some panels are removed!
We are making room for exciting new displays, including figures on loan from the Great Blacks in Wax Museum in Baltimore, and a showcase of student projects.
The open hours are the same for the spring, Tuesdays 1-3 PM and Fridays 10AM -Noon. Check the blog for updates on these exhibits and stop by for a break from classes and the office!
