March 5, 2012 – On Saturday, March 31, the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum will celebrate the birthday of its “patron artist” Elliott Daingerfield, who would be 153 years old this month, as well as the closing of the inaugural exhibit dedicated to him. The regular admission charge will be waived from 2-4 p.m. and the event will include refreshments, a special tour and a children’s activity based on the artist’s many sketches of animals. De-installation will begin on Saturday, March 31, so this weekend marks one of the last opportunities to visit the exhibit in Blowing Rock. An abbreviated version of the exhibit will travel to the Cameron Museum in Wilmington in May. For more information, call (828) 295-9099 x 3001 or email email@example.com.
