David Fairbanks Ford founded the Main Street Museum since 1992. He is a member of several old Vermont families, one branch of which are the “poor cousins” of the Fairbanks family of St. Johnsbury who founded the Fairbanks Museum. He has lectured and curated at the Dartmouth College, Norwich University, St. Michaels College and The University of Vermont and most recently, in 2009, at the Taxter/Spengemann gallery in New York City. However, taking the Sea-Monster to the historic Tunbridge fairgrounds, as well as having his art-car entered in the (now quite historic as well) Tunbridge Demolition Derby must be considered career highlights.
