Name: Evening Lecture at the Historical Museum
Date: November 14, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Join the Kittitas County Historical Museum on Thursday, November 14th at 6pm, for “Hidden Treasures in Washington’s Museums” with journalist Harriet Baskas. She will present a fast-paced, photo-filled and, at times, somewhat offbeat tour of Washington history through the stories of museum artifacts that are rarely – or never – shown to the public. Examples include Bing Crosby’s toupees in Spokane, a quilt made of Ku Klux Klan robes in Yakima and Native American spirit boards in Tacoma. We will explore how those objects came to be in the local collections and who makes decisions about what is displayed or kept from view.
