DOYLESTOWN, PA – When the Michener Art Museum opened the Edgar N. Putman Event Pavilion for lectures, Jazz Nights and special events in April, the museum’s education center got a makeover and reopened as a dedicated Education Center and Gallery, with three fully-equipped classrooms. Participants in this summer’s camp programs have been fully enjoying the new space, producing artwork that is… museum quality, and hanging in the new gallery!
