Join us tonight to celebrate the “Water Tower Wonderland” exhibit opening!

Discover the beauty, ingenuity, and architecture of these iconic structures in the Kelley House Museum’s summer exhibit, “Water Tower Wonderland.” Using historic photographs, original pieces from local artists, and small-scale models, the exhibit explores the majesty and functionality of many well-known water towers, several still standing and some that aren’t. On display will be renderings of Mendocino water towers in several media, with serigraphs by Anne Kendall Foote and Bill Zacha, a quilt square by Dee Goodrich, and a linocut by Emmy Lou Packard. The Kelley House has also been working closely with Mendocino High School, and the exhibit includes pastels and architectural models made by students.

4pm – 5pm: Kelley House members will enjoy a private preview and reception.

5pm – 7pm: General public invited for refreshments and cookies as part of Mendocino’s Second Saturday Art Walk.
