The Board of Directors of the Friends of the Eric Sloane Museum work to preserve and to promote the legacy of Connecticut author, illustrator, and artist Eric Sloane (1905-1985). We work in concert with the state of Connecticut and the Eric Sloane Museum to develop programming and events held on the museum grounds throughout each season. Our board members receive no compensation and we are a welcoming and inclusive group.
