A $24 million project to build a new Martha’s Vineyard Museum in Vineyard Haven is on track to raise some $15 million in cash and pledges by the end of the year. This was the good news at the museum’s annual Evening of Discovery, the principal annual fundraiser held on Saturday night.
Change is planned for the Martha’s Vineyard Museum, and the museum wants community feedback. That was the thinking behind a series of community forums recently held in Chilmark, Vineyard Haven, West Tisbury, Edgartown and Oak Bluffs.
Speaking to a crowd of two dozen people attending the Tuesday night meeting at the Federated Church in Edgartown, museum executive director David Nathans thanked everyone for coming. “It’s important to all of us that we get feedback from you. We really, really want feedback,” he said.
