After viewing the Hollywood Costume exhibit, the Arts & Flowers displays, and the Bonsai trees, I headed to another gallery where another temporary exhibit was on view. This one is called "Read My Pins" and it's all about the enormous collection of jewelry pins owned and worn by Madeleine Albright. She was well known in political circles for always wearing some type of pin on her clothing, often matching the pin to the event or the personalities of the people she would meet. The collection was fun to see but, the stories that went with the pins were simply fascinating.
I love this quote from the book "This is a collection that has been amplified and enriched by the events that have engaged their owner, providing a visible record of past experiences and future hopes."
If this exhibits makes it's way to your town, I recommend it. It's a sort of whimsical way to look at historic events that we all read or heard about in the news.
So now I've reviewed four special exhibits going at the museum last weekend. I'm not done yet, I still have more to show you. Stay tuned tomorrow.
