Join us for Collections Conversation! In this virtual program, you will be introduced to rarely seen objects from RIHS collections. Handled by Registrar Dana-Signe K. Munroe under an overhead camera, you’ll see details up-close as you hear about these unique items. If you find yourself captivated by something in particular and want to know more, simply ask! Guests are encouraged to pose questions in real-time as they view the pieces, which will be answered as we go.
In this inaugural session, we’ll take a look at six purses and bags that span two centuries. Considered “everyday items,” these pieces feature beautiful detailing and show us that even the most mundane things can be special and treasured.
