Pelham CouchFest

Pelham residents are invited to rock out or chill out from the comfort of their own couches while raising money for local nonprofits during Pelham’s first-ever live virtual concert – aptly named PelhamCouchFest featuring many of the community’s favorite musicians.#pelham #pelhamcouchfest #pelhamny

If you have attended one of the museum's many programs or special events, strolled the gardens, or viewed an exhibit, know that by doing so, the experiences you had are part of its continuing story. You are a part of its history and we'll get through this, all of us together.

If you are able, we hope you will help preserve Bartow-Pell by making a gift today.

Earth Day at Bartow-Pell

This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.

Try, as best you can, not to let
The wire brush of doubt
Scrape from your heart
All sense of yourself
And your hesitant light.

If you remain generous,
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning- John O’Donohue
