Lost and Found, a temporary exhibition at the Library of Virginia closes Saturday, August 25.
What do you collect and value? Lost and Found examines the constantly changing fabric of our world. Things disappear from our cultural landscape, sometimes almost without notice—signs, buildings, even towns—and others go into attics, basements, and landfills. Some are saved and carefully stored and preserved; others intentionally destroyed, sometimes dramatically. Explore the spectacular destruction of archives by chance and nature, the intentional destruction of personal papers, the careful preservation of family treasures, and the assemblage of materials in a bank safe deposit.
The Library of Virginia is open to the public Monday through Saturday, 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM.
