Now is the time to look in that hope chest or check the drawer in the desk for that perfect memento of your childhood that you would like to share in the latest of RCHS’s series of community exhibits. RCHS encourages submissions for the Fall 2018 exhibition, When I Was A Child: A Community Remembers Childhood, which will be held at the museum from September 10 to Dec. 22, 2018 as part of this year’s examination of childhood in Rensselaer County. 

You are invited to submit proposed objects and/or framed works that reflect some aspect of your childhood or the childhoods of other family members.  Please see the link below for the Application Form, deadlines and other details.  Images, artwork, toys, clothing, etc. will all be part of this companion exhibit to Kids, Kids, Kids – Growing Up in Rensselaer County currently on view in the Grimm Gallery.
