One of Studio Agoos Lovera’s Principals is a board member of the Mercer Museum in nearby Doylestown and attended the first of many opening events for their new wing. The Museum is gearing up for the ultimate, public grand opening of the new $12.5 million, 13,000-square-foot wing on Saturday, June 18!!! For anyone who doesn’t know, the Mercer Museum is one of three extraordinary buildings built in the early 20th century by historian and archaeologist Henry C. Mercer. Mercer designed and built his vast museum in cast concrete to house the almost 30,000 item collection of objects he had assembled as a way to preserve the material of daily life in the early years of the development of America before it vanished as a result of the Industrial Revolution.
The museum’s debut exhibit “A World of Things: The Mercer Museum A-Z,” is a diverse sampling of the museum’s 40,000 piece collection including many objects that have rarely or never been exhibited. For anyone in the area, the public opening is June 18, beginning with the ribbon-cutting at 10:15 am. Events are planned throughout the day and the inaugural exhibit runs through November 27.
