Location: Evergreen Museum & Library
Dates: December 10, 2015 – January 31, 2016
A set of silver spoons, a Walloon sword, and a Japanese katana are among a collection of historical objects recently returned to Evergreen Museum & Library. Curated and researched for the first time by student history detectives from Johns Hopkins University, the diverse artifacts on display in this winter focus exhibition illuminate the broad collecting interests of the B&O Railroad’s Garrett family, the range of teaching that takes place at Evergreen, and the many stories that can be told through a single object.
Exploring the Museum: All About Things will appear in the Reading Room.
[Exploring the Museum: All About Things is organized for Evergreen Museum & Library by Johns Hopkins undergraduate students under the direction of Elizabeth Rodini, director of the Museums & Society Program in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences.]
Opening reception, 6-8pm, on December 10, 2015.
