Part of an eight-part series showcasing souvenir plates from all fifty states and located on the first floor of Bird Library.
Although the heyday of the souvenir plate has sadly passed, the artifacts endure. They are time capsules reflecting those things that society held dear. Be it the stunning Bull Shoals Lake and Dam in Arkansas or Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater hewn from the very landscape itself, these humble plates serve as vital documentation of America’s grand cultural heritage. This installment of the ongoing series includes Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, and Illinois.
Curated by Stephen Singer from the Learning and Academic Engagement team.
