Come to the Holland Land Office Museum to see the first in a series of mini-exhibits focusing on materials and objects of our collection that have suffered from neglect and time. The Decomposing Past series will begin with textiles from Tuesday, October 3rd to Tuesday, October 31st. The objective of this multipart exhibit series is to bring awareness to the importance of museum work and the preservation of the physical past. The first installment is focusing on textiles and clothing across 180 years (1750-1930)! Admission to the exhibit is included in regular museum admission.
Along with the exhibit, our curator will be hosting a textile workshop on October 21st, discussing various preservation methods and various items housed in the HLOM Clothing Collection!
