A Fan in the Hand
Join Curator of History Michele Nielsen for an informative gallery talk on a special exhibit, “A Fan in the Hand,” on Saturday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m. at San Bernardino County Museum. This gallery talk is free with museum admission.
Nielsen will talk about the fans in the exhibit—the language of fans, collecting fans, and the history of hand-held jewels. Visitors will also get a chance to see some of the fans that are not included in the exhibit.
“Fans have their own unique story to tell,” said Nielsen. “Visitors will find it enchanting to learn the language of fans—a Victorian fancy—and about the history of fans.”
