It's Night Out @ the Woodson, when the Museum stays open until 7:30 pm on the first Thursday of each month. See origami, paper sculpture, and learn about and try Charlie-Harper-inspired artwork.

I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the outdoor garden. I toured the Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina and it gave me a greater appreciation of what we have here to see "Free". Thank you for this work in progress. Can't wait to see after pond area is done.
