Special Thanks

The Family Exploration Studio is made possible in part by LeChase Construction Services, LLC. LeChase Construction, LLC

The Rockwell Museum received a very generous gift from William H. Goodrich, President and Chief Executive Officer on behalf of LeChase Construction, to upgrade the Family Exploration Studio. New furniture and fixtures were provided by LeChase in order to offer an enhanced educational experience. A team from LeChase repainted; replaced the carpeting with new; and provided new interpretive signage.

The Studio supports the larger educational vision of The Rockwell; to be a leader in providing authentic art and cultural education experiences. The Rockwell is deeply appreciative of this gift from Mr. Goodrich and LeChase Construction.
