Gloria Cachion Art Gallery: Southbury vs. the Bund
By Melinda Elliott and the Southbury Historical Society: September 1 – 28
In a sojourn from the usual wonderful art on display, our Gloria Cachion Gallery display this month examines a vital segment of local history: the 1937 fight by Southbury residents to keep a pro-Nazi training camp out of Southbury. This exhibit can be viewed in person during library open hours from Tuesday, September 1 – 28, 2020. Currently, the First Floor and Gloria Cachion Art Gallery are open 9:30am-4:30pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and 9:30am-6:30pm Tuesday and Thursday. A preview of the exhibit with additional background information can be found on our website here.
Melinda Elliott, President of the Southbury Historical Society, researched and curated this exhibit featuring nine narrative panels on display in the Gloria Cachion Gallery space and a special selection of documents, maps, and photographs on display in the Brown Room. The items on display in the Brown Room come to us directly from the collections of the Southbury Historical Society.
Currently, this story and other Southbury artifacts are featured in a display in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, commemorating an important period of a small town’s civic resistance to Nazis on the American home front. We are excited to be able to also share such an important piece of local and national history right here in our own Gloria Cachion Gallery.
