What is happening at the Quaker Heritage Center?
On display March 19 through August 5
- We Travel to Learn -
Traveling is many things.
We travel to explore, for adventure, to see the sights and to experience the new.
We go on journeys, pilgrimages, and vacations.
Here, at Wilmington College, we travel for all of those reasons...and more.
We travel to help our world and to change ourselves for the better.
We travel to learn.
We are the Isaac Harvey Fund.
The exhibit is a multi-media, multi-platform depository of memories, photos, and items from individuals who have traveled for service and education with the assistance of the Isaac Harvey Fund. The Quaker Heritage Center is the crossroads in which the past and future recipients' travels and deeds meet. Just as the students and their travels are diverse, the blank walls of the Quaker Heritage Center have been transformed into a diverse living collage.
One of the many ways for children to learn about other cultures is through play. The dolls and books on display here are all part of the collection of the Quaker Heritage Center that have helped generations of children explore the daily life, traditions, games, and hsitory of groups of people around the world. This exhibit is a small revival of the exhibit of the same name hosted here in 2010.
