The Bowen Center for the Arts


Dahlonega’s Craig Darlak once again presents his wonderful display from his collection of vintage music boxes dating back to 1880 through 1930. Come view theses amazing works of history and hear wonderful old-timey stories of yesteryear. Demo dates will be forthcoming once established.

Bring friends and family for the OPENING RECEPTION Friday March 3rd from 4:00-6:00pm and enjoy music, treats and refreshments before heading out for the evening.

For demonstrations of these fine machines, reserve a time to bring your group. Several dates will also be published to provide a look back into history. Hear some tunes our ancestors plugged into as they hummed, tapped their hands, danced and ice skated. 

The display includes images of performances (below) showing the musical art of the times. DON’T MISS IT!
