The Muncie newspaper, The Star Press, had an article about the exhibit -- "Minnetrista to offer transparent look at history of Ball jars"

Plan on making time to see the exhibit when you attend the summer Muncie Fruit Jar Show.
There will be some special RARE Ball Jars added to the display just during the time period of the bottle show. So if you've already seen the display -- you'll want to see it again. And be sure to get your "I WAS CANNED" photo taken behind the giant jar display!

Here's the link to the Martha Stewart Show's episode about collecting Ball Jars with the CEO of JARDEN.
It is great to see so much promoting of the jar collecting hobby from the Ball/Jarden folks -- thanks!

There's also a companion piece "advertorial" about the history of Ball jars in the May issue of Country Living Magazine.
