In collaboration, the Silver City Arts and Cultural District, the Silver City Museum, and CLAY Festival, are making possible the display of "Disappearing Mining Landscape of Grant County". This exhibit is on display now at the Silver City Museum and continues through Labor Day. If you drop by the Museum you will see Ann McMahon's photographic prints along with Andrew Lindlof's collection of rocks and minerals from three of the nineteen mining districts in Grant County which are close to Silver City. They are the Central Mining District, Boston Hill and Chloride Flats. During CLAY Festival July 22 to July 30 there will be lectures and demonstrations, during the exhibit, relating to Silver City's mining heritage. The details of these activities will be on this News Page in the future, as well as the websites for the CLAY Festival and the Silver City Museum.
