BENNINGTON — While the Bennington Museum was closed this past spring, it invited people to vote for their favorite objects and works of art online. The result is the People’s Choice exhibit, on view now through Nov. 3.

At 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, children and their adult companions will visit the exhibit, and then head outdoors to the Hadwen Pavilion to talk about their own favorites. Children and adult participants in this Museum ABCs program are invited to bring a favorite object from home to share.

The museum asks participants to wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth, even while outdoors. The museum will be closed to the general public at the time the Museum ABCs families are in the galleries.

The Museum ABCs program is a collaboration between Bennington Museum and the Bennington Free Library. The program is intended for children ages 3 to 5 and their adult companions and supports early literacy and a lifelong love of museums and learning. Museum ABCs is offered at no charge to participants, thanks to support from The Bank of Bennington.
