GOSHEN - The Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame will present some classic Currier & Ives art as part of its Lunch, Learn, and Create event Nov. 15, according to a press release.

The event will take place from noon to 2:30 p.m. and feature wintry scenes from Currier & Ives as well as a Thnksgiving style hot buffet lunch and an opportunity for attendees to work on a craft project, the release said.

After the buffet lunch, there will be a slide presentation and discussion of Currier & Ives winter scenes, the release said.

The day’s activities will then be capped off with a hands-on craft project, designed for participants of all artistic abilities, and time to tour the museum’s main gallery featuring the exhibition “Horse-Drawn: The Sleighs of Currier & Ives.”
