A slide show of iconic Island artist Stanley Murphy’s work will be presented by his son David at the Katharine Cornell Theater in Vineyard Haven, Thursday, July 12, at 5:30 pm. The show is sponsored by the Martha’s Vineyard Museum.

The show was originally presented last April to a full house at the Grange Hall to honor the 100th anniversary of Stan Murphy’s birth. David’s son, John, will accompany the slide show on his grandfather’s Martin guitar. David will narrate the presentation. A limited number of Stan Murphy prints will be available for purchase to benefit the West Tisbury Library Foundation.

Admission is $8 for M.V. Museum members, and $12 for non-members. Reservations are strongly encouraged. Please contact Brie at the Museum at 508-627-4441, ext. 110, to reserve tickets.
