Washington County Historic Courthouse opens exhibit on life of objects
The Washington County Historic Courthouse will be host to an exhibit “The Life of an Object: Stories, Meanings & Moments,” which opens Saturday, June 5, and will run through December 2021.
Join Washington County Parks to explore how an object may communicate ideas, values, and meaning with this exhibition. Learn how the artifacts in the Historic Courthouse archives that have been preserved and collected through the years not only tell the story of the building itself, but are also a reflection of a time, people, and community.
The curator, Megan Arney Johnson, will be on site at a free Meet the Curator event from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 5. Tour the exhibit with the curator and discuss curating, the importance of objects, and more.
The Washington County Historic Courthouse is at the corner of Pine and Third streets in Stillwater. See the county website at www.co.washington.mn.us/hc for more information about the building and activities planned in it, or call 651-275-7075 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
