"Trustees Collecting": A Special Exhibition at Trenton City Museum


"Trustees Collecting," the Trenton City Museum’s first new exhibition of 2023, will be on view from March 4 through April 15. Curated by Joan Perkes and Diane Ciccone, the president and vice president of Trenton Museum Society, the exhibition honors the Trenton Museum Society at 50 years.

In this heartfelt exhibition Trenton Museum Society trustees, present and past, share more than 80 artworks from their own art collections, accompanied by stories of how they came to occupy a special place in their homes and in their hearts.

The Trenton City Museum, housed in historic Ellarslie Mansion, showcases contemporary works by area artists, ongoing and changing displays that explore Trenton’s rich history, varied performances, and family-friendly programming. The museum and its museum shop are open Fridays and Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m., and Sundays, 1 to 4 p.m. While there is no admission fee, donations to support the museum’s programs are welcomed. The Trenton Museum Society, founded in 1973 to support and operate the museum’s programming, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023 with many events planned throughout the year. Visit or call 609-989-1191 to learn more about the museum, its programming, and its history.
