7:00 pm - Artifacts After Dark: Sports and Games
Live-streamed on Facebook.
Locked safely away in Eastern State Penitentiary’s climate-controlled darkroom, hundreds of artifacts rest in neatly organized drawers. Every Thursday evening in October at 7:00 pm, Erica Harman, manager of archives and records, will bring a different selection of Eastern State artifacts out of the darkroom and into the night. This week, get a look at artifacts that tell the story of sports and games at Eastern State, and make connections to life in prisons today. Learn More >
