The World at Our Feet: Celebrating 40 Years of the Valley Soccer Club
June 1 - November 3, 2019

The Heritage Center has a special exhibit lined up for the summer and fall months in the First Floor Galleries titled "The World at Our Feet: Celebrating 40 Years of the Valley Soccer Club" with guest curator Michael Freed. A soccer coach, super fan, and collector Freed will be sharing his collection in this exhibit that will trace the history of the Club, local soccer in general, and provide an overview of the sport nationally and globally through his amazing collection. If you're a fan of this worldwide sport or a novice who wants to learn more, this is an exhibit for you!

Signature Quilts
June 14 - November 8, 2019

Our summer quilt exhibit will focus on locally made signature or friendship quilts from the Heritage Center. We are fortunate to have a number of these significant quilts in the collection and it is a great opportunity to show them together in one gallery. Ranging from the important "fraktur quilts" with calligraphy by local scriveners to quilts with stamped and embroidered names, this exhibit will be a treat for quilt lovers and historians. And who knows? You may find an ancestor's name on one of them!
