The Exhibitionist will be an occasional series of blog posts from the office of the Director of Exhibitions. Historical artifacts are loaded with layers of meaning and stories about makers, artists, users, and collectors across generations. Physical exhibits can only tell a part of these stories, here we will try to go further.
This series seeks to tell these other stories, and to draw connections between artifacts currently on exhibition to help our visitors to think about all of our collections in new and different ways. We will flesh out themes in our current exhibits as well as exploring unique topics and compelling narratives. Ultimately we want to draw connections between things, people, places, and times that will make the history of Ticonderoga and our collections richer and more meaningful to present and future generations, the way it has been for past ones. Look for more posts soon. Hope you will find them compelling!
