Check http://www.brockvillemuseum.com for more info – the show runs from September 19 to October 16 and should not be missed…

  1. Hi Loretta! I have been in love with the barns since I first saw it!!! In fact when I finally decided how I wanted to go my collage of our big 2014 car trip around the US, I sort of borrowed the idea, certainly not exactly. We are getting close to being able to see the end of the tunnel in our new house in Ocala! Moving at our age is not for wimps!!!!! Do I have your email to send you a picture of my unfinished collage?
