      Discover Hex Signs folk art on Glencairn Museum Bus Tour of Berks County 3/23

      Join Patrick J. Donmoyer, director of the Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center at Kutztown University and author of “Hex Signs: Myth and Meaning in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars” (2013), for an exploration of the “barn star region” of northern Berks County.

      We will drive through an area with the highest concentration of decorated barns in Pennsylvania, with a special emphasis on the hills and dales of Albany Township and surrounding communities.

      Donmoyer, guest curator of Glencairn’s featured exhibition, “Hex Signs: Sacred and Celestial Symbolism in Pennsylvania Dutch Barn Stars,” leads this tour to discover a wide variety of traditional barn stars, popularly known as hex signs, and explore the folklore of this diverse and colorful artistic tradition.

      Includes continental breakfast & box lunch. Must reserve seat by 5pm Thursday, March 21.

      Cost: $65pp, $50 Glencairn members
