The People’s Gallery
March 2019 – Dec 2019
Fredericksburg is full of collectors; from match-box cars to sport-memorabilia, Fredericksburg residents have a lot to share! The introduction of this new gallery space called, “The People’s Gallery” will be given each year to a local collector to showcase what they collect and why. You’ll be surprised at some of the treasures our neighbors have!
What Coker Collects features a variety of objects collected by local resident Dr. John Coker, featuring Nutcrackers, Madame Alexander Dolls, and much more. This exhibit is generously sponsored by Dr. John Coker.
The first collection features the private collection of Mr. John Atkins featuring rare and one-of-a-kind Disney pieces and park ephemera. This exhibition is generously sponsored by Lewis Insurance Associates.
