The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum celebrates the publication of its first exhibit catalog “Toys of the Future” with a book launch party. Museum Director Eric Cale says: “Because of the nature of our mission, it is very rare for a museum of local history to create an exhibit catalog; this is our first in 80 years. The Museum features new exhibits frequently and when they close, they’re gone forever; but not in this case as it lives on through the catalog.”
The Catalog captures the artifacts featured in the exhibit which closed this past January. The catalog was made possible through the generosity of celebrated photographer Larry Schwarm who worked with the Museum’s graphic designer Greg Sullivan and the exhibition’s lender, Poet Albert Goldbarth to create the catalog.
