Henry Sheldon Museum

You’ve been inside the Sheldon–but have you been outside?

We are reimagining the Museum Garden, nestled in the heart of downtown Middlebury. Our goal, with your support, is to create an outdoor recreation and performance space to host both Museum programming and community-driven events and initiatives. As we continue to grapple with the effects of Covid-19, outdoor public spaces, more than ever, provide essential oases for community gathering and recreation. The following renderings were created in collaboration with landscape architect Keith Wagner to envision the potential for our Museum Garden as a dynamic site for dialogue, art-making, and meaningful community engagement. Your purchase of a brick will support Museum operations and provide seed money for the reimagined garden planning process.


Brick by brick, we will lay the groundwork for
a vibrant new public space in the heart of our community.

Help us pave the way to the future!
