Are you looking for an interesting – yet easygoing – way to get back into the world? Do you wax nostalgic for the clickety-clack of a Smith-Corona? Then join Inlandia Institute and Riverside Art Museum in a joyful celebration of the typewriter! The installation includes eight typewriters you can actually touch – as well as one mystery typewriter with an intriguing origin story, under glass.
Typewriters will be on display in the RAM Atrium from June 25-July 16 and visitors are encouraged to give them a try. Prove your skills with “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” and other inspirations from typing class – or hunt and peck a tome of your own!
And on Saturday, July 10, at 2:00 PM, join us for a special presentation from typewriter aficionado and repairman to the stars, Bob Marshall, who will talk about his love for this classic writing instrument, which, as he sees it, is “no longer the business machine of yesteryear, but the preferred writing tool for a curious, creative mind.” Journey with Bob through the decades and discover how these writing machines of old can find new purpose as a muse to your creative writing process. Typewriters provided – bring your imagination.
