Blue Ridge Institute & Museum Introduces New “Travelers’ Trinkets” Exhibit

The Blue Ridge Institute and Museum at Ferrum College announces its newest exhibit, Travelers’ Trinkets: Souvenirs of Virginia. The Blue Ridge Institute & Museum at Ferrum College announces the newest exhibit on display through December 2020, "Travelers' Trinkets: Souvenirs of Virginia".

This unique exhibit focuses on the history of souvenir collecting, the various types of souvenirs, and how souvenirs have evolved throughout the years to the most popular form today—the “selfie.” Only focusing on the souvenirs of Virginia, this exhibit is the first of its kind in the Old Dominion and features collectibles ranging from refrigerator magnets, gorgeous ruby stained glass, Dale Earnhardt trading cards, to human hair.  Funded by a generous grant from Virginia Humanities, the exhibit will run until December 2020.
