Learning at Lunch - Lucy Burns Museum 2008-2021

The Lucy Burns Museum at the Workhouse Arts Center is proud to present Learning at Lunch, a new series illuminating aspects of the former prison’s 91-year history. Each month, one of our founding volunteers tackles a topic from our complicated past. After a brief 30-minute talk, presenters answer audience questions, and all attendees are invited to visit the museum following the program. Table seating will be available, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch; snacks, and beverages available for purchase.

The Lucy Burns Museum is a tribute to volunteerism. Starting as a gleam in the eye of the historian and community activist Irma Clifton, the museum began as a temporary installation in Building 16. Over a 12-year period, the collection moved from temporary quarters in one of the former prison dormitories to the museum you see today. Founding Director Laura McKie shares highlight from that journey. Free event.
