Vesterheim Commons Collection Access
In this update, Vesterheim President/CEO Chris Johnson talks with Collection Manager Jennifer Kovarik about the museum’s extensive collection and ways that the Commons will help Vesterheim share it.
The third floor will include an area we’re calling the collection access space. Its purpose is to help us better share the collection and allow students, researchers, and artists to get up close and personal with artifacts, which are often used as inspiration for art projects and connections to history. Our collection started at Luther College as a teaching aid and we maintain that educational spirit and embrace it in our work. This collection access space will serve as a classroom and also a more intimate place to study the collection on any level.
Thank you for joining us and supporting this project!
Don’t forget that right now every gift of $1000 or more to the campaign will be matched dollar for dollar.
