Current Exhibition

Closed for the Holiday - November 23 - 24, 2023

September 23, 2023 – January 21, 2024
Tigers, Unicorns, and Puppy Dog Tales. This exhibit celebrates the fantasy and wonder that was – and is – Green Tiger Press, the Unicorn Cinema and the Mithras Bookstore. Although operating in the different mediums of an independent publishing house (Green Tiger), a film venture (The Unicorn) and a bookstore (Mithras), all three shared a common pursuit – presenting and sharing whatever they found to be truly marvelous, and they also shared common founders in Harold and Sandra Darling.
