The Town of Windsor Art & Heritage Center will host its latest exhibit, “Fire and Crime,” January 18 through March 31.
An opening reception will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, which will pay special recognition to Windsor Police officers and Windsor Severance Fire Rescue staff. Light refreshments and beverages will be served, sponsored by High Hops Brewery. The reception is free and open to the public.
With “Fire and Crime,” patrons will scour a crime scene and use forensic methods and powers of deduction to solve a crime in this exciting and sinister exhibit.
“The crime is set in the 1920s. Visitors gather clues, and complete fingerprint, footprint, and hair analysis to identify the murderer,” said Museum Curator Caitlin Heusser. “It’s a fun, hands-on way to learn about forensic methods.”
After the crime is solved, patrons have the opportunity to learn more about the history of Windsor's Police Department and Windsor Severance Fire Rescue.
In conjunction with the exhibit, Fire Marshal Sandi Friedrichsen will give a presentation on modern fire investigation techniques. The free talk, “Fire Investigation 101,” will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Art & Heritage Center.
The exhibit is free and open to the public from noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. It is recommended for ages 7 and up. The Art & Heritage Center is located at 116 5th Street.
