Lincoln Collection Exhibitions


The construction of a case adjacent to Special Collections in Morris Library to house a permanent, rotating exhibition of material from the Lincoln Collection was completed in August 1998. The initial exhibition of material from the Lincoln Collection featured Currier & Ives prints and other artwork, sculpture, a unique ceramic tile portrait of Abraham Lincoln, nineteenth-century illustrated sheet music published after Lincoln’s death, and a sampling of books from the Lincoln Collection’s extensive holdings. Ongoing exhibitions interpret aspects of Abraham Lincoln's life and his momentous times
