Photograph of one person's hands above a light table, wearing black archival gloves. The right hand is holding a lupe and the left hand is holding a color slide with a red paper border and the word "India" hand written on the paper. Just under the hands are nine more slides with handwritten lables, and with both white and red paper borders.

Archivist Kelin Baldridge Smallwood will lead a behind-the-scenes tour and conversation about the year-long project of processing, preserving, and digitizing the John Rhoden Collection. Kelin was a member of the PAFA team that catalogued over 300 works of art and 22 linear feet of archival materials to create the free, online John Rhoden Digital Archives. Tour participants will be able to view objects from Rhoden's archive, learn about PAFA’s archives and collections spaces, and tour PAFA's archives vault. This tour is limited to 15 people.  

Registration for PAFA's Archives: Rhoden's Legacy Tour includes museum admission.
