Who does not know a pencil? Our first incursions into written knowledge are usually associated with a pencil. Where does it come from? How is it made? Are they a German invention?
Come to the German-American Heritage Museum (GAHMUSA) and explore it yourself. GAHMUSA is proud to host the exhibit “In Praise of the Pencil “, researched and curated by the German-American Heritage Center in Davenport. This exhibit encompasses everything from a “Jot-to-Jot Timeline in Pencil History”, to sculptures by artist Jennifer Maestre, to a photograph collection from the Library of Congress, and tells a story of innovation and German Entrepreneurship.
