Course Description

The Hunterdon Art Museum offers a captivating journey through the intersection of art, craft, and design, housed within the walls of a historic stone mill in Clinton, New Jersey. Founded in 1952 through the efforts of artists James Randall Marsh and Anne Steele Marsh, the museum’s home, Dunham’s Mill, was meticulously converted into a hub of artistic expression by architect William M. Hunt. The museum’s commitment to preserving the mill’s historic character while providing a vibrant space for creativity is evident throughout its exhibitions and programs. 

Stepping into the Hunterdon Art Museum, visitors are greeted by a diverse array of exhibitions showcasing the works of both local talents and renowned national artists. The museum’s emphasis on art, craft, and design offers a unique perspective on creative expression, inviting guests to explore the boundaries between these disciplines. The museum’s inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 further underscores its significance, not just as a venue for art appreciation, but also as a monument to the region’s rich history in commerce and industry.

From its inception, the museum has been a labor of love, with individuals like Otto Siegmund and Ann Douglass playing key roles in its development.
