Recording memories in books is a centuries-old pastime. Whether written accounts in diaries and commonplace books, genealogical notes in family bibles, photography in albums or souvenirs in scrapbooks, people have an enduring interest in documenting their lives and interests. In this installment of CollectionsConnections Live!, review selections from the Valentine’s archival holdings to see how generations of Richmonders have preserved their own histories.
Did you know that museums typically have less than 10% of their collection on view at a time? Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the Valentine’s new storage and access spaces during this new series. View selections from the Valentine’s holdings currently not on exhibit and learn about the fascinating Richmond stories behind them.
Space is limited and registration is required. This is a ticketed event.
