Joe Scott: Carson Davenport Historic Homeowner
Saturday, November 6  •  2 - 3:30pm  •  24 Reid Street, Chatham

Joe Scott, owner of the Carson Davenport Historic Home on North Main Street in Danville, discusses his Carson Davenport Collection and the home of the artist.

The DMFAH will be starting a Carson Davenport Registry for private collectors in the Dan River Region. This enables museum curators who come through to have private tours and to have access to the Carson Davenport works for larger museum exhibitions. This will also allow private collectors to understand how they can enlarge their own collections and find out who might be interested in buying their collections should they wish to sell. The museum will not be purchasing any Carson Davenports, but we will encourage collectors to donate works to the museum. The museum now has a curatorial team, and we will have a conservation focus in the years to come. Our main objective is accessibility for national curators and researchers as well as conservation.
