In honor of its 50th anniversary, the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts at Old Salem (MESDA) is holding a Community Day on November 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The building will close at 5 p.m. but the last tour will begin at 4 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to visit MESDA for free that day.

Founded in 1965, MESDA has completed an eight-year renovation to prepare the museum and its collection for the next 50 years. On November 14, visitors will be able to explore two new galleries: the William C. and Susan S. Mariner Southern Ceramics Gallery and the Carolyn and Mike McNamara Southern Masterworks Gallery as well as four newly renovated galleries. Guided tours featuring 12 of the 30 galleries housed within the museum will be available between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on a first come first served basis. Each guided tour is limited to 10 participants.
