The front lawn of the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art was filled with children of all ages for the annual Heritage Arts Festival.  This year’s creative art projects were based on the theme “Masonite and Our Timber Heritage” and utilized Masonite board and panels.  The theme was used to highlight the museum’s present exhibition “What Lies Beneath - Masonite and American Art of the 20th Century.”

LRMA Director George Bassi encourages people who are not familiar with the product “Masonite,” which was invented right here in Laurel, to visit the exhibit and learn about the different uses of the unique material.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.  Closed on Monday.
