'Mr. Fitz' marks museum's 60th year

HUNTINGTON — The exhibit “Mr. FItz: Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Huntington Museum of Art” will open Saturday in tribute to the museum’s crucial mission in the Tri-State for the last 60 years.

The exhibit includes pieces from the more than 425 works donated by the late Herbert Fitzpatrick, who donated 52 acres on which to establish the museum, which would house his art collection. He also requested the property include an arboretum, bird sanctuary and nature trails.

The Huntington Galleries as it was called was opened in 1952.

The exhibit will remain open through Oct. 20, 2013.

The museum will continue its anniversary celebration with a gallery walk with Barrie Kaufman at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 9 in conjunction with the opening of her exhibit, “Curator’s Choice.” A reception will follow the free walk.

The museum is at 2033 McCoy Road.

 The exhibit “Mr. FItz: Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Huntington Museum of Art” will open Saturday in the Daywood Gallery of the museum and continue through Oct. 20, 2013. For more information, call (304) 529-2701.
