On Thursday, April 14th, 2016, GAHMUSA hosted the opening reception of its latest exhibit In Praise of the Pencil. This is the second exhibit highlighting German Entrepreneurship and also a strong collaboration with one of our German Club partners.
With participation of distinguished Board members participants were able to preview the exhibit while enjoying German delicacies. A brief presentation of the history of the Pencil was made.
In Praise of the Pencil was carefully researched and curated by the staff of the German-American Heritage Center in Davenport, Iowa. The exhibit relays the story of pencil manufacturing and its surprising connection to German culture and heritage.
The exhibit will also showcase art work from renown artist and sets provided by Staedler. The event was graciously sponsored by Staedler and by the German Gourmet.
