In 2023, the Adirondack Experience will open its latest permanent exhibition, Artists & Inspiration in the Wild. Join us for a sneak peek and meet the creative team bringing the museum’s fine and decorative art collections into a new home, the first dedicated space for these works. Once opened, Artists & Inspiration will show how the natural features of the Adirondacks have inspired the creative work of artists and artisans over hundreds of years. The new galleries will offer a blend of rich and diverse works from the ADKX vaults with contemporary interactive media, all in an enriching, immersive exhibit experience. Come see!
