Kit Freudenberg, interim director of the National Churchill Museum in Fulton, explains former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s love of watercolor paintings on Thursday. The museum’s expanding watercolor exhibit is a yearly homage to the prime minister’s hobby. ​

COLUMBIA — More than 80 watercolors by five painters from Malaysia and China are being featured at the National Churchill Museum in Fulton.

The 14th Annual Watercolor Missouri International Show was inspired by former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s interest in painting, said Kit Freudenberg, the museum’s interim executive director.

"Because of Churchill’s tie to painting, we said a watercolor exhibit would be wonderful," Freudenberg said.

The exhibit is $7.50 for adults and $5.50 for college students until May 16. Admission is free with a Westminster College or Callaway County school ID.
