Create a Lasting Legacy at the LCM in City Park!

LCM partnered with glass artist Mitchell Gaudet to create a one-of-a-kind art installation to adorn the new LCM in City which adds a beautiful interactive feature and creates a lasting legacy for the Museum. Crafted in a rainbow of colors from recycled glass and designed to be etched with names, memorials, quotes or other tributes, these beads will bespeckle the full length of LCM’s new porch railings where children will be able to spin them as they hunt for names.

Personalizing a bead is a truly distinctive way to celebrate those you love while also contributing to an endowment to ensure LCM engages children in playful learning for generations to come. Only a limited number are available and the sales cut-off April 1, 2019 (to allow time for bead installation before grand opening).

Don’t wait – purchase yours today!
