Info

Ongoing exhibit. During the first two decades of the 20th century, the village of Old Lyme, Connecticut was the setting for one of the largest and most significant art colonies in America. Centered in the boardinghouse of Miss Florence Griswold, the colony attracted many leading artists - Henry Ward Ranger, Childe Hassam, and Willard Metcalf among them - who were in the vanguard of the Tonalist and Impressionist movements. Drawn to Old Lyme by its natural beauty, they discovered an "old" New England setting that was, as one observer noted, "expressive of the quiet dignity of other days." November through March: Tuesday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday, 1- 5 p.m. April through October: Tuesday - Sunday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Please note, the Museum is closed New Year's Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
