The four seasons—winter, spring, summer and fall—evoke distinctive individual memories, yet often with universal appeal. This engaging exhibition drew from the artifacts in the Concord Museum’s rich and varied collection to explore some of the nostalgic events, traditions, and rituals of each season in American culture. Opening to the public on the first full day of summer, the exhibition began by chronicling the season of outdoor recreations, summer breezes, and patriotic celebrations. Spring, fall and winter were similarly explored through artifacts that bring to mind a seasonal sense of time and place: spring cleaning and baseball, back-to-school and applepicking, keeping warm and snow sports.
