Around & About

The Stark Museum of Art is hosting a new exhibit Long Shadow: The Lutcher-Stark Lumber Dynasty.

The exhibition features historic photographs and documents from the Eunice R. Benckenstein Library & Archive. “The exhibit grew out of the recent publication of the same name,” said Jenniffer Hudson Connors, M

anager of the Library & Archive. It tells the story of the Lutcher and Stark families at work, in the community and at home. Many of these items from the collection have not been on public view before and will be on display in this exhibition for the first time.

Stark Museum of Art is located at 712 Green Ave. in Orange and is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
