Attleboro Arts Museum presents Character Development exhibit

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – The Attleboro Arts Museum, 86 Park St., will hold an opening reception for its Character Development exhibition on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Sixteen artists working in a variety of mediums were invited to choose one portrait from a subset of the museum’s permanent collection. Each were asked to visually respond to their selected work and encouraged to use their personal slant and style to create a new piece that was inspired by, or reflected, the museum holding. The results were not designed to be replicas of permanent collection portraits – they are derivative works that express the voice of a contemporary artist.

The reception is free and open to all. Reservations are not required, but are appreciated, by Friday, Feb. 14. Call 508-222-2644, ext. 10, or email

The exhibit runs Feb. 15-29. Museum hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Special viewing hours will be held during the city of Attleboro’s Winter Night Festival on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 4 to 7:30 p.m.

Admission to the Attleboro Arts Museum is free; donations are always appreciated.
