Proof Positive: Wine, Beer and Spirits of the Finger Lakes
There is a unique relationship between alcoholic beverages and the Finger Lakes. Social, geographical and even political factors have created an environment where wine, beer and spirits have become an important part of our communities, and we have embraced these industries as an important part of life in the Finger Lakes. Proof Positive is a celebration of the history, culture and economics of the wine industry, microbrew movement and distilleries in our region. We welcome you to explore various viewpoints of history, agriculture, politics and economics as you learn more about how wine, beer and spirits have impacted the Finger Lakes Region.
Also on exhibit, the Ted Case Research Lab, inventor of sound on film, and Both Sides of the Wall: Auburn and its Prison. Suggested donation $3, Noon - 5:00 pm, Tues-Sun.
