      Join guest curator Darcy Kuronen as he provides an in-depth look at a selection of banjos on view in America’s Instrument: Banjos from the Jim Bollman Collection. Enjoy cookies and coffee in a brief reception before the tour.

      Darcy Kuronen worked for nearly 34 years at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where he was a curator of one of the country’s oldest and most important collections of musical instruments, with over 1200 examples from all time periods and regions of the world. In 2000 he organized the critically acclaimed exhibition, Dangerous Curves: Art of the Guitar, celebrating the diversity of guitar design over the past four centuries with 130 rare instruments from private and public collections. He is also author of the exhibition’s award-winning catalog of the same name. Kuronen continues to serve as volunteer curator for the collection of historical instruments owned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. A specialist in early American instruments, he has written several articles and lectured widely on this subject.

      Space is limited for this in person event and reservations are required. Call 860-443-2545 ext. 2129 or email us at info@lymanallyn.org.
