Meaningful Objects: Art and Artifacts from the Homes of the Everhart’s Board and Staff

February 18–June 5, 2022

Meaningful Objects, on view February 18 through June 5, showcases beautiful, eclectic and interesting objects from board and staff members that hold special sentimental value. Each piece, whether a practical everyday object or a work of art, is joined by a narrative text illuminating why it occupies a special place in the owner’s heart and mind. Through this exhibition, the community may better understand the people who drive the Everhart’s mission and what matters to them. 

Featured objects include everything from antique sound machines, French Impressionism, and Currier and Ives prints, to Mickey Mouse memorabilia, an antique truck grille, and contemporary art.
