On Track with Toy Trains
The Marlborough Arts Center is sponsoring a Toy Trains Exhibit that will delight everyone with this trip back into childhood memories of having or playing with a toy train - or wanting to do so. Beyond that, trains are such an important part of American history and the expansion of our country that this exhibit touches us in many ways. Looking at this impressive collection of trains brings up images of train crossings, of the sounds of "All Aboard!" and the horn's tooting that signaled adventure and unknown places - and still does. All are welcome to attend the Opening Reception on Friday, April 5, 2013 from 7-9 p.m. The exhibit then runs from April 6, with docent led talks about the exhibit, - May 19, every Saturday and Sunday, from 1-4 p.m. with the exception of Mother's Day, May 12, when the Arts Center will be closed. Admission is free of charge. Read more...
