"Nearly everyone is a collector. It is a universal impulse and humans have been assembling groupings of like items for thousands of years. What we collect and why, however, varies tremendously. In STUFF, we explore just a few of the reasons why people right here in our community have amassed boxes of things, from promotional pens to science fiction figurines to old bank notes," Dulce Kersting-Lark, Executive Director at Latah County Historical Society.
The exhibit runs through Wednesday, January 2, 2019.
