“We saw our 75th anniversary is 2023. And so this is just the first step .And this is not sort of an end all but it’s just sort of the beginning of the process and will continue to move and it continues to evolve and and you’ll see more changes as we move into into our anniversary year,” said Brownawell.

The Farnsworth Museum Store will also remain open Tuesdays through Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
