The items selected for this exhibit span the history and collections of the Clark County Museum. They include artifacts from the Museum’s Founding Collection, the Anna Roberts Parks Collection. Many of these items have never before been exhibited.
The exhibit celebrates the remarkable 38 year career of Dawna Jolliff, Curator of Exhibits, the artifacts were carefully picked from the Museum Collections for the stories they tell about southern Nevada, they were chosen because they speak artistically, intellectually and emotionally to Dawna as curator. They can be viewed for their craftsmanship, remembrance of family or community, their humor, or because of a specific story they tell.
The museum hopes that the community enjoys this exhibit of favorite objects from the collection, and that the exhibit will inspire visitors to think about what their belongings mean to them.
