Take an In-Depth look at Buttons in Hands-on Seminar


Museums provide visitors with information about objects and their history, but rarely give insight as to how these stories are discovered. The Branigan Cultural Center will give a hands-on seminar on Thursday, March 27 at 1 pm on the study of material culture through buttons.

This workshop is aimed at adults and will focus on the kinds of historical, economic, and social information that can be revealed through the careful study of buttons. These innocuous fastenings might tell you more than you realize! We will look at patterns in the manufacture, use, and style of buttons and even consider some conservation challenges presented by the collection of buttons in the museums’ collections. This program is free and open to the public.

The Branigan Cultural Center is located at 501 North Main Street. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For more information, contact the Branigan Cultural Center at (575) 541-2154 or visit the Center’s website at las-cruces.org/museums.
