This exhibition is a small sampling of political memorabilia borrowed from the collection of Alfio J. Brindisi, Philadelphia. Brindisi has been collecting political items for over 30 years. His collection dates from George Washington to Bill Clinton and includes over 15,000 items buttons, teapots, toilet paper, toys, hats, cigars, pennants, masks, plates, and posters--to name only a few. This exhibit has been planned in conjunction with the Republican National Convention and will remain on view through the Presidential Election.
