Hartley has made an additional eight paintings related to Sept. 11, 2001, available for Saturday’s Remembrance Day, whose theme is “Memories of Yesteryears.”
“They are something else,” museum cofounder and curator Bobby Mault says of Hartley’s 9/11 paintings. “… People really need to see that.”
If weather permits, the paintings will be displayed outside during the 10 a.m. flag-raising
Restored farm equipment and vehicles will be part of the exhibits Saturday, when visitors can see the progress of the museum’s development, Mault says the past year has brought a lot of changes.
