Response to A Secret Gift

A page from the Keller Gallery Guest Book

So far, the response to our exhibit A Secret Gift has been incredible!

We've been getting many requests for people to see letters in the library -- some knew they had a family member in the B. Virdot Collection, and some did not.  It's been gratifying for our Archivist Mark Holland to connect these people with the past in a way they never expected!

Sam Stone's daughter Dorothy (Dotsy), the "dot" in B. Virdot, was in town for the Soup at Six and the exhibition opening last week.  She came back yesterday for her third trip through the exhibit, where she was able to take in more of the content without the big crowds.  She loved it, and for me, that's one heck of a stamp of approval!

We hope you'll take some time this holiday season to visit us at the Museum.  A Secret Gift is a wonderful story about the spirit of giving that resonates all year round, but especially so at this time of year.

I hope it inspires people to be generous, "in the spirit of B. Virdot."
