Visitor Center Exhibit
Thank you to all who made the 2017-18 Visitor Center exhibit, “Signed, Stamped or Engraved: A Treasury of Artifacts Bearing Names,” such a success. It featured premier artifacts from the Landis collection that, in one manner or another, are marked with peoples’ names, exploring historical reasons why they came to be so.
The next exhibit, “Thrown, Fired, and Glazed: The Redware Traditions from Pennsylvania and Beyond,” will focus on Pennsylvania German redware, a specialized type of pottery using reddish brown clays and decorated in various ways with stylized motifs. The exhibit will be in the Visitor Center for two years, though each piece will only be on display for one year.
