Ludwig van Beethoven was baptized 242 years ago today. We celebrated his birth yesterday here on Verso with a post featuring a Beethoven artifact that’s tucked away in our library. Read the full post here.
You’ve got less than a month left to come enjoy a few of our exhibitions, so be sure to stop in soon. “A Just Cause,” our Civil War manuscript show, and “Alpine Skeletons,” the Marsden Hartley silverpoint exhibition, will have their last day on Jan. 7. A week later, our Civil War photography exhibition, “A Strange and Fearful Interest,” draws to a close on Jan. 14.
