    A new look for the Café!


    The next time you visit the café, you'll notice a fresh new wall color and a magnificent landscape painting by Joseph H. Greenwood. The overmantel triptych, painted around 1912, is on loan from the family of Henry J. Ciborowski, a former WAM Trustee who passed away on February 6, 2016.

    The landscape was commissioned by local industrialist Matthew J. Whittall (1843–1922) for Juniper Hall, his summer estate in Shrewsbury. The painting was originally applied directly to the wall in the house's grand foyer, where it remained until the building's demolition in 1979. The painting would have been destroyed had it not been for the enterprising efforts of Henry Ciborowski and his daughter Kim Ciborowski, who carefully removed the work and had it professionally restored. A hand-carved and gilt frame, based on Greenwood's own design, was custom-made to highlight this important painting.
