Pulling artifacts together

In Ohio, and maybe in other states too, you used to have to get a new license plate each year.  This is what they looked like in 1933, the year of B. Virdot's anonymous Christmas gifts.

This is the last week before we take down the White House exhibits and install A Secret Gift!

This morning I've pulled together all of the artifacts from various storage areas around the building, so everything is ready to go.  I "visited" each item previously, in order to write its object label, but with no carts available until now, I didn't pull anything.

There are some neat artifacts!  This is a fun stage in the process, when you get to see all of the separate things in your head come together in reality.

Remember -- the exhibit opens November 15!  Hope to see you there.
