MISSOURI STATE ARCHIVES TRAVELING EXHIBITS

JEFFERSON CITY — Secretary of State Jason Kander Friday announced that the Missouri State Archives, a division of his office, has five traveling exhibits available for schools, libraries, local governments, historical societies and other groups to reserve for free for 2015.

The traveling exhibits, which highlight Missouri’s unique history, include the Archives’ latest production, Blueprints for Democracy: Public Architecture in Missouri, as well as four others:

Divided Loyalties: Civil War Documents from the Missouri State Archives
A Legacy of Conservation: The 75th Anniversary of the Missouri Department of Conservation
Lewis and Clark Across Missouri: Mapping the Historic Landscape
Ozark Light: The Photographs of Charles Elliott Gill

The exhibits were produced by researchers at the Missouri State Archives and feature photographs and historic records in panel displays.

No special or formalized training is required to feature any of the displays. Past Archives partners have displayed the exhibits in atriums, lobbies and galleries with positive results.

Community groups may reserve the exhibits for one to three months at a time by calling Greg Olson at 573-522-2705.
