Banjo head collection on display at Evansdale Library


A unique collection of banjo heads illustrated by their owners in the late 19th and early 20th centuries is currently on display at the Evansdale Library.

Bob Smakula, proprietor of Smakula Fretted Instruments in Whyte, West Virginia, is the curator.

“From crude looking cartoons and graffiti to portraits by skilled artists, banjo head art has always been a fascinating part of my musical instrument collection,” Smakula said.

The exhibit is on display on Evansdale Library’s first and second floors through the fall semester.
