Seven hardy members of the West Suburban Mystery Group braved the wet November elements to spend time at the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, MA. With two docents leading us throughout we learned of the museum's history and how icons are created. We then visited specific icons and heard about their history and meaning. Out tour ended at the new exhibit "From Corncobs to Cosmonauts" where the center of the gallery was adorned with multiple decorated holiday trees. Cases around the walls featured Russian holiday cards, ornaments and toys.
A leisurely and delicious lunch at Clintons Bar and Grille rounded out our outing.
