Preparing for the 2018 seasonal exhibit at the Abbott School has been a treasure hunt. The photographs and memorabilia in the Porter-Dewson scrapbooks are clues, each leading toward friendships, political connections, or familiar locales. Most clues led the unsuspecting exhibit committee members off in more than one of these directions. The end product is necessarily only selected highlights from the scrapbook collection and the story of these women’s’ lives. “Exhibit Talks” offer two opportunities for you to discover more about the Porter-Dewson story. Join me on two Tuesdays, July 17 and August 14 at 5pm, for more treasure, more historical connections, and more intriguing stories.
Wine, cheese and history will be served.
