Art, Anomalies and Shadow Puppets; stop by for some hot cider!
Currently under construction, SEAFOAM PALACE will be a museum that explores the nature of curiosity and wonder. As a modern 'Wunderkammer', the museum's exhibitions will encourage visitors to investigate their own sense of the marvelous while playing with the frontiers of art, science, history and adventure. What are the new realms from which we bring back our mysterious artifacts, what are the puzzles that enchant us? In addition to creative interpretations, the museum will offer workshops and programming to examine these ideas in media such as photography, audio and publishing.
We recently raised over $23,000 for a new roof in a Kickstarter campaign! Check out our video to take a peek inside our building and find out more about our museum.
Now that the new roof is installed, we're raising funds for lots of other needed improvements before we can open. Anything you would like to contribute would be incredibly helpful. Thanks!
