Far From Springfield: Items from Around the World
Sunday, November 24, 2019, 02:00pm - 03:45pm

An opening reception for a new exhibit at the Donald B. Palmer Museum of the Springfield Free Public Library will be held on Sunday, November 24, from 2:00 to 3:45 PM.

The exhibit, “Far From Springfield: Items in the Donald B. Palmer Collection from Around the World,” will feature a diverse selection of items that were collected by Donald Palmer over the course of his life, from England, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands and Spain.

While recent exhibits in the Palmer Museum have focused more on local history, this exhibit will offer members of the community a chance to view some of the more unusual items that make up a significant portion of the collection that Mr. Palmer bequeathed to the Springfield Free Public Library. This exhibit is made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
