Curator to lead gallery walk through new exhibit
Michele Nielsen, curator of history at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands, will lead a gallery tour through a new special exhibit, “Paper Trails,” on Friday, January 4, at 1:00 p.m. The tour is included with paid museum admission.
“Join me to explore documents, ephemera, and related artifacts, and discover how these seemingly inconsequential ‘scraps of paper’ can help us understand more about the past,” said Nielsen. “And we’ll try out techniques used in the past to write a letter and make a graphic design to take home or leave in our ‘Read the Handwriting on the Wall’ mini gallery.”
The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 am to 5pm. General admission is $8 (adult), $6 (military or senior), $5 (student), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sb countymuseum.org. The museum is accessible to persons with disabilities. If assistive listening devices or other auxiliary aids are needed in order to participate in museum exhibits or programs, requests should be made through Museum Visitor Services at least three business days prior to your visit. Visitor Services’ telephone number is 909-307-2669 ext. 229 or (TDD) 909-792-1462.
