GOLDENDALE – European royalty and Native American artifacts – along with a big dose of fun and games – are on display at Maryhill Museum of Art, near Goldendale. Last weekend was free admission for Yakima County residents. The price was right, as they say, so we took full advantage on Saturday. There are, of course, the long-standing, permanent favorites like an 80-piece Rodin exhibit and extensive display of items belonging to Queen Marie of Romania – a friend of Maryhill founder Sam Hill. The museum’s $10 million Mary and Bruce Stevenson Wing opened in 2012. Surrounded in glass, the wing (along with its outdoor terrace) offers expansive views of the Columbia Gorge. Patrons of the Sunnyside School District may be interested to note several works by modernist sculptor James Lee Hansen are on exhibit at Maryhill through July 27. The local school district has Hansen’s The Explorer sculpture, which for several years was displayed in the district’s board room. The fun and games and culture continue for free at Maryhill throughout the summer. The next free weekend is July 19-20, with admission at no charge for residents of Benton and Klickitat counties. A highlight of the free weekend will be a live performance at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 19, of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. If you miss out on the free weekend at Maryhill…don’t worry. That’s because your $9 adult admission ticket stub earns you free tastings at several wineries in the area. So get out to Maryhill for a merry time of art and cultural appreciation.
