Event Details:

Opening reception: January 16, 5-7 p.m. This exhibition offers a wide selection of St. Valentine's Day greeting cards, postcards, and elaborate three-dimensional fold-outs from the United States and Europe. Ranging from the early 19th century to the 1930s, this exhibit showcases the development of the valentine from the simple hand-designed card, to the extravagant and exquisite lace paper valentines. Approximately 100 fine examples of embossed designs will be on view, illustrating how the ideas of romance and courtship were expressed during a less complicated era.
