  • MMA & AAN to Host Community Collage Day

    Join the Nantucket Maria Mitchell Association (MMA) and Artists Association of Nantucket this Saturday, July 16th, as we host Community Collage Day with artist-in-residence, Danny O’Connor. We will be collaging with our impressive 100 year collection of National Geographic Magazines. Maria Mitchell’s brother, Henry Mitchell, was one of the founders of National Geographic in 1888. Danny O’Connor says, “Collage is a super fun way to create spontaneously, it’s even more fun with a group of other curious minds!” All ages are welcome to join in the fun! This event take place at 33 Washington Street from 10am to 4pm and will be fun for the whole family. Admission is FREE. The MMA and AAN will host a second Community Collage Day on August 4th from 10am-4pm.
    The Maria Mitchell Association is a private non-profit organization. Founded in 1902, the MMA works to preserve the legacy of Nantucket native astronomer, naturalist, librarian, and educator, Maria Mitchell. The Maria Mitchell Association operates two observatories, a natural science museum, an aquarium, a research center, and preserves the historic birthplace of Maria Mitchell. A wide variety of science and history-related programming is offered throughout the year for people of all ages.
