Online Exhibits

One feature of the Ephemera Society’s conference and show in Greenwich, CT each year is a room devoted to exhibits mounted by members and interested others. Many exhibits tell a story on a particular subject, some demonstrate the range and informational value of paper ephemera, others are simply a fine opportunity to show-and-tell favorite items. We invite one and all to participate by putting together an exhibit—or several exhibits—to share with the kindred spirits in attendance.

Now, here, we also offer the opportunity for one and all to display a showing of interesting items online to the world at large. The format is simple: An introductory text of any desired length (within reason), plus a grid of thumbnail images. Clicking on any image will display a larger view of the item.

Several such virtual exhibits have been posted below, and more are in the works.

Those interested in possibly posting their own such exhibit are encouraged to contact Committee Chair Tamar Zimmerman at tamarzimmerman@hotmail.com
