Guests will see three beautifully restored automobiles: a 1922 Ford Model T Runa

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.
