The Aidron Duckworth Art Museum is dedicated to preserving and presenting the artwork of Aidron Duckworth, in accordance with a Trust established by the artist in 1997.
The building served as a public school for the children of Plainfield from 1928 to 1972. From 1977 to 2001 it was home and studio for the artist, and a part time art school for adults.
The galleries in the center of the building are a recent change. The western portion of the building is left as a living space/studio, which is how it served the artist in his later years. It is the only portion of the museum with heat.
The eastern section is a private residence.
Over 1250 drawings and paintings are held by the Trust, a charitable public educational organization registered in New Hmapshire with nonprofit, taxexempt status.
There is no admission charge, and it is handicapped-accessible, but donations and volunteers are very welcome.
It is our hope that presenting the works of Aidron Duckworth in this setting will continue his conversation with the world, encouraging artistic awareness and creativity.
