Community Connect to Collections Day

Learn how objects are assessed by our museum. Feel free to bring artifacts and documents to discuss their significance!

This program will consist of assessing the historical value of objects brought by community members, consulting on deciding when and how to donate objects, and reviewing some of the organizations to work with on object donation.

The program will be presented by our Curator of Archives Shaun Boyd and Director of Community Outreach Marissa Volpe. Shaun Boyd has worked in archives for over twenty years and she has a special interest in genealogy. She is currently working to organize History Colorado's oral histories in an effort to make them available to a wide range of communities. Marissa Volpe's work focuses on reaching underrepresented communities and sharing their stories through various programs at History Colorado. She is especially interested in documenting and collecting the history of Hispano-Coloradans.
