What Do You Collect and Why?
Join the Conversation…
1 Family, 3 Generations, Timeless Treasures…The Stark Museum of Art presents COLLECTING CONVERSATIONS, a new exhibition, opening August 6, 2016, that invites the public to connect with the Collection of the Stark and Lutcher family in unique and interesting ways.
Everyone collects something. People buy keepsakes to remind them of their travels. They keep treasures to pass down through their families. Some seek objects that can teach them about the world. Others collect items that are valuable, beautiful, rare, or quirky. Such “stuff” tells stories, sometimes about the objects, sometimes about the collector and often about both. Read more…
Free Admission. Free Parking. Children 12 and under are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
