Shadowbox your collection | March 4, 2017

Design your own shadowbox with instructors Elizabeth Greer and Karen Harlan, and then  put it to use to showcase your favorite collection. Inspired by our current exhibition A Call to Collect, we are imagining how we might to display our treasured collections, coins, photographs, and more! Bring your favorite collection items, and mount them in your own shadowbox.
