“Arts and Artifacts: Selections from the Louis Bromfield Collection at Malabar Farm”

Earlier this week Tom gave a 90 minute presentation to 26 members of the Lucas Area Historical Society titled “Arts and Artifacts: Selections from the Louis Bromfield Collection at Malabar Farm”.  After retiring from teaching, Tom worked at Malabar Farm State park for five years before retiring (a second time!) to serve on the park’s board of directors.

“The Louis Bromfield collection consists of nearly two-hundred pieces, collected over a thirty year period from the mid 1920s through the mid 1950s. It includes oil and watercolor paintings, bronze sculptures and ceramics, fine art prints, and textiles. The collection also holds a number of pieces of antique French furniture dating to the 18th century, acquired during thirteen years that the Bromfield family lived in France from 1925 to 1938.”  -Tom

Malabar Farm State Park, situated just outside of Mansfield in North Central Ohio, encompasses a working farm with animals, guided tours of Pulitzer Prize winner Louis Bromfield’s sprawling farm house, miles of hiking trails, picnic areas and playground, and a visitor’s center and gift shop.  The park regularly hosts special events and is open year-round.
