From Madison Historical Society

Curatorial Description

Madison was home to the country's earliest summer theater. First held outdoors and later in a barn, the plays were popular fundraisers for charitable causes including post WW I relief, the Madison Historical Society and the preservation of the Lee Academy. These designs are done in pen and ink with watercolor, on 8.5" x 11" rice paper glued to 11" x 14" art board.
