Event Details

January 27 (Sunday)
12:30-3:30 p.m.

Admission to the Museum and all exhibitions and programs is free every Sunday thanks to generous support from the Society of the Arts (SOTA), City Center Allentown, the Gadomski Foundation, and the Sylvia Perkin Perpetual Charitable Trust.


Come to the Museum to share your oral histories, recipes, personal artifacts, and other expressions, in solidarity with our counterparts in Puerto Rico!

Tin Can Trust is an artistic and cultural exchange initiated by Amber Art and Design, long-term artists in residence in Allentown this fall and winter in partnership with the Art Museum and the Caring Place. Conceptually, the program plays with the history of the tin can as an object that was intended to allow for longevity and preservation of material resources. Tin Can Trust seeks to create connections by exchanging artwork and stories between residents in Allentown and those in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Participants in public workshops will create art as part of a “production line” to mimic the canning process. Works of art and personal stories will be canned and exchanged between the two cities, illustrating the value of exchanging and sharing art and culture as a form of solidarity.

The Museum’s long-term artist residencies are supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and by the HeARThstone Project, which is supported by the generosity of the Harry C. Trexler Trust.
