Museum seeks loan: The Tri-State Museum and Visitor Center in Belle Fourche will open a new temporary exhibit on Sept. 28, “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. ... What we lack is dolls that became popular during the '50s, '60s and '70s. A Chatty Cathy, Betsy Wetsy or Mrs. Beasley doll would be terrific to add to the exhibit.” Unlike items 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. For more information call 723-1200. The Tri-State Museum and Visitor Center is located at 415 Fifth Avenue in Belle Fourche.
