First of all, if you have strolled by the museum lately you have noticed the colorful additions to the windows. “Mrs. Painting Patti” has been hard at work, putting her creative touch to the test.

Plans are also underway to paint over the drab white walls inside the museum. The new color will be comparable to that of a buckskin horse. The middle pillar and back walls have already been painted to look like a crinkled piece of leather, and this has really brought some life to the museum.
