Frisco Native American Museum Some things in life are free . . . On Saturday, September 26, 2015, individuals will have an opportunity to visit the Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center with FREE admission. The museum will participate in the twelfth annual Museum Day presented by Smithsonian magazine. On Museum Day, selected cultural institutions and museums nationwide open their doors free of charge to Smithsonian magazine readers and visitors for a celebration of learning. “We’re delighted to be part of this celebration again,” said Carl Bornfriend, Executive Director of the Frisco Native American Museum. “A number of years ago we served on the Southeastern Regional Advisory Committee when the new Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian was planned, so our relationship with the Smithsonian has been long and rewarding. We support the concept for Museum Day and have been pleased to have visitors and local individuals take advantage of it over the years.” Attendees must present Smithsonian magazine’s Museum Day Admission Card to gain free entry to participating institutions. The card is available in the September 2015 issue of Smithsonian magazine and a downloadable version is available on the website. Visitors to the Frisco Native American Museum & Natural History Center can also explore the nature trail which is available during day light hours. The trail includes a dugout canoe in progress. The canoe, shaped from a ten foot Cyprus log, will be part of a village planned for the nature trail. Individuals are pictured below scraping the interior of the log. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday and is located on Hatteras island in Frisco. For more information, visit the web site at or call 252-995-4440.

Louis C. Tiffany: Art and Innovation By: Wanda Lassiter, Curator, Museum of the Albemarle On September 22nd, the Museum of the Albemarle will open its newest exhibit Louis C. Tiffany: Art and Innovation. The name Tiffany is recognizable to many but few may know that Louis Comfort Tiffany, famed for his innovations in glass, was the son of Charles Tiffany, founder of the internationally acclaimed Tiffany and Company. Featuring pieces on loan from private collectors and several institutions, the exhibit tells the story of the companies created by father and son as well as putting Tiffany’s stained glass in the context of the broader Art Nouveau style. Glass such as those pieces seen in the Tiffany exhibit require special handling and cleaning techniques. The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works has a great website that will help individuals learn how to care, handle, and store personal artifacts. The link about-conservation/caring-for-your-treasures#.VZ_hPU9VhHw gives you options of learning about textiles, metals, books, photographs, furniture and even video tapes.
