Treasures Found!

March 25 - May 15, 2007

The exhibition opened Sunday, March 25, and featured recently discovered artworks and museum debuts by Frank L. Melega. Plus, a few favorites from private collections that haven’t been on exhibition at the museum since it opened in 1999.

The painting which graces the cover of the exhibition postcard was painted by Mr. Melega for the 1959 Presidential Campaign of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. As you know, Mr. Kennedy won, I am certain, in part, because of this large, forty-four inch high poster. But seriously, Mr. Kennedy was just across the river from the museum in California, Pennsylvania for a campaign stop during his bid for the White House. I remember distinctly how excited my neighbor was because she shook hands with the future President at that event.  A memorable day filled with optimism and hope.

The Kennedy painting was joined by a number of artworks that had not been exhibited in the museum before and artworks that haven’t been seen by anyone for decades. The artworks ranged from small drawings and paintings to larger works.
