Be My Valentine

Posted in Current Exhibits, Exhibits, Featured

February 9 – March 31, 2024
Curated by Karl J. Flesch & Deborah Gorczycki

“Roses are red, violets are blue, there is no better person than you.”

On display is a collection of twenty early 20th century pop-up Valentine’s Cards collected by Trenton Museum Society members Dr. Warren Trochinsky & Sherry Weinberg.

The idea of celebrating love on the 14th of February came from a popular account of St. Valentine. To find out more about the origins of the Valentine’s Day and Valentine’s Cards:
