Signs of the Times exhibition opens at Fairfield Museum

Signs direct people to and fro, and call attention to specific places, events and locations. Beyond the words they carry, they use symbols, color and design to communicate their message. Explore how signs have been used around Fairfield over the years at the Fairfield Museum’s newest exhibition, Signs of the Times.

The exhibition opened to the public on Aug. 10 and runs through the end of Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 26. The collection of Fairfield-related signs on display range from commercial signs to informational pamphlets. In addition, visitors can learn how some of Fairfield’s streets got their names, and try their hand at making their own signs.

The Fairfield Museum, located at 370 Beach Road, is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Members of the Museum and children under 5 are free. For more information call 203-259-1598 or visit Fairfieldhistory.org.
