PA Lumber Museum- Virtual Programs:
PHMC Monthly Virtual Collections Showcase program
Please join us for the next installment of the What’s in a Theme? – Virtual Collections Showcase. Museum professionals from PHMC’s historic sites and museums will be presenting and discussing objects from their collections that relate to a different shared theme each month. Sites will have 5 minutes to make the case as to why their object best embodies that theme. Then, the audience will vote for their favorite. The winning site will get to host a future episode of this program and select a theme of their choice. Look for PHMC Virtual Collections Showcase programs to happen on a regular basis throughout 2021. And, if you miss the live program be sure to check out the recording on PHMC’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8ZjZK2E6_Ot1vdHpLSkULu3P21iccgH5
