Visit Stella The Stegosaurus!

Sewing Birds Collection

Visit a large Stegosaurus, the dinosaur sculpture on permanent display in the Museum’s patio garden. Artist Jim Gary (March 17, 1939 – January 14, 2006) was a self-taught metal sculptor best known for his large whimsical creations of dinosaurs assembled from discarded automobile parts. Welded by hand and painted in vivid colors, Gary’s sculptures are almost life-size, and each is stegosaurus comprised of hundreds of car parts – he used as many as eight to ten automobiles to build a single dinosaur.​

The Monmouth Museum is home to one of North America’s largest collections of 18th and 19th century sewing clamps also known as sewing birds.

Exhibition Committee

Exhibitions at the Monmouth Museum are selected by a committee of arts professionals. Proposals are reviewed quarterly and chosen based on their artistic merit, dedication to mission, and community interest. The schedule is planned two years in advance. Independent jurors are retained to select works for most juried exhibitions and occasionally the Committee will serve as the adjudication team. Proposals for exhibitions may be submitted at any time of the year.

The Monmouth Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Tax ID 22-1739205.
