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.
On Thursday, February 22, at 12pm the RIHS will present Traveling Treasures from the Rhode Island Historical Society. Cultural institutions such as museums, archives, and library collections often borrow and loan out pieces that can help add context to an exhibit or gallery. In this talk, RIHS Museum Collection Manager Luis Vasquez and Deputy Executive Director of Collections & Interpretation Richard Ring will discuss the process of lending and borrowing between institutions.
