  • COVID-19 Update--Dear Friends, as part of the effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have closed the Museum to the public through at least April 30, and have cancel all programs during this time. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Museum soon (and often!), but until then, we encourage you to visit the Artists’ Trail, a half-mile walk around the Museum’s riverfront landscape and gardens. Check our website and social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to stay up-to-date about the Museum’s status and enjoy beautiful images, on-line exhibitions, fun facts, and behind-the-scenes videos. Should you need a staff member, call or email them as usual. Please stay in touch, Your FloGris Friends

Museum Theatre: Florence Griswold Recounts a Night of Merriment & Metamorphosis

Ah, what a night! Miss Florence, and her family home, have been transformed after an insect-themed soirée thrown by the Bohemian artists of the Lyme Art Colony. Still abuzz with excitement of the artistic antics of the night before, Miss Florence recounts the evening’s activities, the festive food, the thrilling music, and her new-found love for all creatures with six legs or more. Jennifer Angus’s installation Silver Wings and Golden Scales is the setting for this first-person theatrical appearance.

Featuring Leslie Evans, Historian and Director of the Avery-Copp House Museum, Groton, CT.

Appearances between 11am-4pm. Free with Museum admission.

Other presentation Sundays: August 25, September 15, and November 3 (1-4pm)
