 Exhibit Extended to June, 21, 2020! Image of Roger Miller

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 19 from 1:00-3:00 pm (tour of the exhibit starts at 2:00 pm)

To some, like local collector Roger Miller, buttons are everyday pleasures, tiny works of art that provide a glimpse into history. With thousands of buttons in his collection, Roger’s buttons tell many stories. “I am an historian. I like to get a sense of the history of the buttons in my collection  from how they were used on garments, the art of button making, and where and why they were made,” says Roger. “Button collecting is personal and varied. No two collections are identical.”
