One family, three generations, timeless treasures. The Stark Museum of Art presents a new exhibit titled Collecting Conversations opening Saturday, Aug. 6, at 9 a.m.

Everyone collects something. People buy keepsakes to remind them of their travels. They keep treasures to pass down through their families. Some seek objects that can teach them about the world. Others collect items that are valuable, beautiful, rare or quirky. Such “stuff” tells stories, sometimes about the objects, sometimes about the collector and often about both.

Hi, my name is Arnie, and I am grateful for all the nice people at Beaumont Animal Services: the animal control officer who found me, the judge who didn’t let my old owners take me back, the kennel staff who give me food every day and keep my kennel clean. I am grateful for my bed. Would you believe my old bed was a pile of wood pallets? I am grateful that I will never have to feel the weight of a chain hanging from my neck again. I am grateful for all of the nice visitors who stop by my kennel, and the volunteers who give me lots of treats!
