Casper College Museum Studies Class hosts special Bishop House event

From a Casper College press release:

Like taking a journey into the past? Like remembering your childhood? Like playing with toys? If so, then we’ve got something for you. The historic Bishop House and the students of the Casper College Museum Studies class proudly presents the exhibit: “From Tiddlywinks to Tinkertoys: 100 Years of Toys,” an exhibit showcasing toys from the early 1990s to present day. On November 21, 2015 a reception will be held from 3-7 p.m. at the historic Bishop House, located at 818 East 2nd Street.

In a rare event, the attic of the Bishop House will be open to the public to house artifacts.  The attic is where the Bishop children would play with their toys, but has never been open to the public before. So the class thought it would be a great idea to have an exhibit there. Also in a unique experience, each student chose an artifact to put on display. The instructor of the class, Valerie Innella Maiers says,” This group of students had collective and individual tasks to develop skills in using research and reference materials as well as synthesizing, organizing, and presenting material for the exhibit.  And the students are proud to present it all to you.”

The exhibition will be displayed from November 19, 2015 to January 19, 2016. During the reception there will be tours of the exhibit, refreshments, and even a play area for children. Come to the reception and release your inner child! Admission is free for all ages.
