Kibbe opens Madonna exhibit on the Carthage square

The Kibbe opened an exhibit of Madonna figurines from the the personal collection of Mrs. Elva Thompson Holbrook of Carthage, Illinois.  The exhibit is in a new display space on the west side of the square in the old Royalty’s Department Store window.  This exhibit marks the first time in over 20 years that the bulk of the collection has been publicly displayed.

The Kibbe Museum is pleased to share this unusual collection through the generosity of Dennis and Ruth Royalty and the hard work of students from the Hancock County Academy who assisted with construction of the exhibit.
