Museum Statement:

The Holiday Season provides the opportunity to look forward to the future with anticipation and the expectation that despite adversity, better times are ahead. This shared experience of the positive human spirit, Hope, exists beyond borders and is not unique to any single country or belief system. Throughout time, Hope is woven into all cultures across the globe. With this Main Gallery exhibition, Hope for the Holidays, the Monmouth Museum’s intent is to offer artists’ views of a positive future for their lives, our lives and our shared world.
