Since the invention of the wheel in the early Bronze Age, people have employed the circular shape in tools and machines. From scientific instruments to sporting equipment, the shape appears everywhere.
Round, the latest exhibition at the Sullivan Museum and History Center brings together objects of circular shape, ranging from familiar items such as a uniform button to oddities like a foot-powered dentist’s drill.
“This playfully random sampling of the collection reminds us of the diversity of the Norwich experience,” said museum Director Sarah Henrich.
This new exhibit will be on display through December 20, and is free and open to the public.
The Sullivan Museum and History Center is located on Norwich’s Northfield campus and is open Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. during the summer. For more information, call 802-485-2183
