What are MCL exhibits about?
We've shown all kinds of things! Rock and roll of the 1950s; history of bubble gum; an outstanding doll collection; service history of the USS New Jersey; musical instruments of the world; work of a local Chinese painting group and editorial and political cartooning.
Who exhibits at MCL?
Public and private institutions, collectors, corporations, historical societies, special interest groups, painters, sculptors, photographers or anyone with a shared interest.
Where are exhibits displayed?
We have a smashing new gallery that runs the length of our new building face, with additional glass cases in the lobby. Exhibit cases are locked at all times between installations. The gallery is roofed with skylights, so is airy, light and feels spacious. There are also elevated gallery views from the stairwell landing, up to the second floor, and a second floor overlook through a large window.
When can I exhibit at MCL?
Exhibits are generally scheduled eight months to a year in advance. Scheduling hinges on several factors including the type of exhibit, local and annual events, celebratory months and national holidays.
