MacDowell Colony open to public for annual Medal Day

A renowned artists’ colony in New Hampshire is open to the public for its annual Medal Day

PETERBOROUGH, N.H. — A renowned artists’ colony in New Hampshire was open to the public for its annual Medal Day.

The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough allows the public to visit just one day a year. On Sunday, guests could enjoy picnic lunches on the property and attend open studios hosted by MacDowell artists-in-residence.

Also on Sunday, the colony awarded the 58th annual Edward MacDowell Medal in the Arts to filmmaker David Lynch, though he did not attend the ceremony.
