Sincerely Yours: Stationery Voices from the Archives

08:00 am to 05:00 pm
Wells Library E460, 1320 E. 10th Street, Bloomington, IN 47405
https://libraries.indiana.edu/archives

Sincerely Yours: Stationery Voices from the Archives explores how letterhead, a common utilitarian object, serves to connect us to the social, industrial, and political expressions of our society and reflects the changing world of design. Scholars of the subject suggest the growth in the rich illustrations on stationary correspond with the advancement of American industrialization. This exhibit, with content drawn entirely from the collections of the Indiana University Archives, sets aside the content of the dispatches and focuses instead on the personal and societal stories told by via the letterhead itself. Featuring letterhead from businesses such as South Bend’s Studebaker Corporation to the international Shell Motor Oil company, personal stationary (well, hello, John D. Rockefeller!), travel destinations including nearby West Baden resort all the way to the German city of Leipzig, and, of course, Indiana University!

Harmony School
http://www.bloomingtonwinterfarmersmarket.com/

With over 30 vendors, you can fill your basket with your favorite market goods all winter. The Market offers fresh fruits & vegetables, mushrooms, ferments, breads & cereals, prepared foods, seeds & plants, cut flowers, meat & poultry, maple syrup, honey, dairy, eggs, jams & sauces, baked goods, locally roasted coffee, soap, holiday items, and more. The Market features live music from a variety of talented local musicians.

Saturday mornings from 9:00a.m. to 12:30p.m.,
December 3rd – March 25th (closed December 24th)

Some shop at the Winter Farmers’ Market for the freshest, tastiest foods around. Others come for a variety of artisanal soaps, candles, flower arrangements, and holiday gifts. Some come for community. Whichever your preference, your support is essential to a strong local food economy. All of our market vendors are local growers and producers from Bloomington and surrounding areas. Come for breakfast, enjoy live music, and find great ingredients for the week. Winter Market is a dynamic experience for the whole family.
The Farmers’ Market Doubles SNAP Benefits!
Farm to Family Fund: Help support the Farm to Family Fund (formerly the Healthful Food for All Fund) with gift cards at the Market’s info table. The Farm to Family fund buys fresh market food at half price every Saturday of Winter Market for donation to the Rise, the Community Kitchen of Monroe County, and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. It’s win-win for farmers and families. For $10 you can provide a dozen eggs for 15 families; $25 provides a 1 week supply of greens for 7 families; $50 provides 2 bushels of apples. A generous and thoughtful holiday gift in honor of family and friends!
Parking: In addition to the Harmony School lot, street parking is free on Saturdays. For an easy covered option, the IU Atwater Parking Garage (entrance is off Woodlawn) is only a block away and free on weekends.

Use your observation skills and senses to investigate the winter wonderland of Beanblossom Bottoms Nature Preserve.
