Kelowna collections on display

The Kelowna Museums has a new exhibit for the avid collector. 

Kelowna Collects will showcase a vast collection of Okanagan artefacts donated by prolific collectors throughout the valley. On display you will find a collection of curiosities, including items that don’t usually make their way into exhibits.  

An estimated one third of the population living in North America and Europe collects something for reasons varying from nostalgia to investment. 

"We’re in-between major exhibits," says Patti Kilback, Curatorial Manager for the Kelowna Museums. "We just finished Voices of the Town: Vaudeville in Canada, and in April we have a big exhibit called Ripple Effect opening, so we thought that Kelowna Collects would be a great way to for people to see examples of interesting items that are in the Museums collection."

The Museums are also looking to start a conversation with Kelowna.

"We want to know what the community thinks museums should collect in the 21st century," says Kilback.

Kelowna Collects runs January 18 - March 22 at the Okanagan Heritage Museum.
