The Rhode Island Historical Society will host a weekly virtual series, Love Our Collections, highlighting the behind-the-scenes work of its staff to preserve and share the over 20,000 objects, 9 million feet of motion picture film, and 10 million pages of manuscripts in its collection.
Join the RIHS on Thursday, February 15, at 12pm for Silk Threads and Love Tokens. The RIHS cares for a large and impressive collection of samplers, some of which will be displayed in the Aldrich House in 2024. RIHS Cabinet Keeper and Library Collections Manager Dana Signe K. Munroe and Deputy Executive Director of Collections & Interpretation Richard Ring will showcase some of the intricate samplers in our collection along with some love tokens featuring embroidery and wood carving in honor of Valentine’s Day.
