New cases and shelving for the new building!

I am pleased to report that the new cases for the Keller Gallery are HERE!

The are gorgeous, even if you can't really tell in these photos:


The new cases will make their debut in the next Keller Gallery exhibition The Victorian Age, opening June 18. They are modeled after the ones we got from Split Rock Studios in The Stark County Story.

I am SO excited to see how the artifacts really shine against a dark background!

Steve and his crew are also working on building the shelving for the new storage building. Thank you again to Gergory Industries for their generous donation of perimeter shelving!

We also received some small shelving from the Hoover Company a few years ago when they were emptying out their building in North Canton. Those shelves are being installed at the far end of the new building and will house our shoe collection.

As always, there is a lot going on in the Curatorial Department!!!
