Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives Collection Spotlight for January 2018

January 15, 2018

With the opening of the new exhibit, Artistic Excellence: The Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market Celebrates 60 Years, the museum kicks off a season to honor the annual fair. The Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair & Market, as the event has come to be called, is a special event close to the heart of the Heard community. The idea of showcasing the creativity, diversity, and ingenuity of the community is something that the Heard Fair has in common with World Fairs, state fairs and other Indian art marketplaces. Another common thread is how these events have evolved over time and adapted with their communities. These examples from the library collection describing other fairs and markets over three centuries from a variety of different perspectives are currently on display in the public reading area of the library. Please feel free to visit the library to review these or any other items of interest in the Library and Archives collections. For more details or additional collection information, click on the Search Catalog link located in the pull-down menu of the library tab on the Heard website.
