ESSEX — Come learn about the history of the Florence Griswold Museum as well as all the innovative exhibitions and events in store for 2020 with Director of Education and Outreach, David Rau, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at the Essex Library.

The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme offers year-round exhibitions of American art and interprets the historic Florence Griswold House, a boardinghouse for artists, circa 1910. The 12-acres of gardens and grounds along the Lieutenant River provides a place of natural beauty that inspired the original painters of the Lyme Art Colony as well as those of today. The Museum has just opened its Artists’ Trail, a wonder for nature lovers.

David Rau has been the director of Education & Outreach at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme since 1998. Most recently, Rau played a key role in the reinterpretation of the Griswold House as a boardinghouse for the Lyme Art Colony as well as the Museum’s new triad of online learning resources.
