Up Next...

We're working on our next exhibit entitled Picturing the Past. During our summer history camps, students were given the chance to write exhibit labels for images from our historic photograph collection. The results are fun, interesting, and unexpected.

Here's a sneak preview. Below is a detail from one of the photographs with the text written by a couple of students.

In this picture you see the circus parading past the courthouse. As the circuses of old, they used horse-drawn carriages to get around. Every year when the circus came, people were crowding around the streets to watch. Some people paid a lot of money to watch. Everyone in the city (almost) comes to watch. Let's go!

The exhibit opens on Saturday, August 30, at 2:00 pm. Stop by!
