|Museum Exhibit Speaker to talk about the Hallmark Cards Archives on Oct. 12|
Hallmark Cards Historian Samantha Bradbeer will share stories from the Hallmark Cards Archives when she is the speaker for a special event at the Johnson County Museum in mid-October.
This program is called Museum Exhibit Speaker and will take place on Oct. 12 at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, located in the former King Louie Building at 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. The Hallmark Archives houses a vast and diverse history of graphic design trends, and documents the greeting card industry over two hundred years. The significance of these holdings stem from Hallmark founder J.C. Hall’s encouragement for a high level of quality and creativity and a longstanding tradition of support for the arts. Bradbeer will talk about how a holiday becomes a card-sending occasion, as well as stories behind the holidays.
