Museum seeks loan of dolls for temporary exhibit
The Tri-State Museum and Visitor Center will open a new temporary exhibit on September 28, entitled “A World of Dolls” and is seeking dolls to be loaned for display in the exhibit.
“This exhibit is an expansion on a mini-exhibit we did three years ago, which was a huge success with visitors,” said Tri-State director Kristi Thielen. “We know there are many doll collectors and enthusiasts throughout the Hills area and we wanted to do a more expansive exhibit that would appeal to them.”
The museum archives include a large number of dolls from the first part of the 20th century, including classics like Shirley Temple dolls. “What we lack is dolls that became popular during the 50s, 60s and 70s,” said Thielen. “A Chatty Cathy, Betsey Wetsey or Mrs. Beasley doll would be terrific to add to the exhibit.”
The museum already possesses some dolls from the 1980s onward, including a Cabbage Patch doll, Barbie, GI Joe, Bratz doll, American Girl and Rainbow Brite.
Unlike items which are given to the museum’s permanent collections, artifacts provided for temporary exhibits are considered loans which are returned to the owner when the temporary exhibit closes. “A World of Dolls” would run September through January and then be replaced by another exhibit in February 2020.
