An exhibition of the strange, weird, unusual, fantastic, and FUN objects we collect in our life's adventures.

Something from a relative, bought on a trip, found in the yard, made at work - let us make this the most unusual collection of exhibited items - younger, older, and in-between-er's are encouraged to share their treasured possessions.

This special holiday exhibition will be on display from Friday December 15, through January 28, 2018.
