Uncovering the Biographies of Objects

TAGS: Art Virtual Museum
Friday 8/14

Did you know that in 1909 there was a fire that destroyed the original Rollins Museum? What was in it? By 1920 the museum was rebuilt; with almost 10,000 objects received from multiple donations; it became the Thomas R. Baker Museum of Natural History until it closed in the 1970s. Join Rollins Professors Zack Gilmore, Robert Vander Poppen, and CFAM Curator Gisela Carbonell in a conversation about the stories of the objects in this intriguing collection in anticipation of the upcoming exhibition Storied Objects: Relics and Tales from the Thomas R. Baker Museum.
