Print Donated to Museum by Artist
Mr. Johnny Montgomery, an artist out of Fayetteville, North Carolina, contacted SISCA in the middle of January. He asked if he could donate one of his prints to our museum. We eagerly accepted his offer. We are currently looking for the perfect frame for this special piece. We are indebted to Mr. Montgomery for his generosity.
