Visiting Museum Exhibits
The Brewton-Parker Fountain-New Library has developed an educational program for engaging students, faculty, and the community in exploring our common heritage through hosting traveling museum exhibits. Following the successful launch of the program in April 2017 with the inaugural exhibit, “Witness to the Holocaust,” and in August 2017 with the “The Golden Era of Gospel Music” exhibit, the library is continuing this new tradition with the following exhibits scheduled for public display during the current and coming months.
- “Our Molten Moon: The Story of the First Moon Rocks” from the Center for Lunar Science and Exploration of the NASA Lunar Science Institute. It will be here from January 7 through March 1
- “Fashioning a Nation: German Identity and Industry, 1914-1945” from The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust will be on display March 5 – April 18. To coincide with Women’s History Month, we are also planning to have a female Holocaust survivor give a special presentation in Saliba Chapel on the day the exhibit arrives.
Past Exhibits include:
- “Rocket Girls: Women Astronauts of the Space Shuttle Program” from the International Women’s Air and Space Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, was on display from September 5th through October 13th.
- “The Tuskegee Airmen: The Segregated Skies of WWII,” from Kennesaw State University, will be on display in the library from October 26th through the end of the semester. The undeniable courage and skill of these brave pilots contributed to the desegregation of the United States Armed Forces in 1948. This exhibit offers a look into the historical challenges and triumphs of these unsung American heroes.
- “The Tragedy of War: Japanese American Internment,” also from Kennesaw State University, was on display from the beginning of 2018 Spring Semester through January 31st. “The Tragedy of War” revisits the injustice of Japanese-American confinement by telling their stories and asking questions that still resonate today.
- “Patriot Nations: Native Americans in Our Nation’s Armed Forces,” produced by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, tells the remarkable history of the brave American Indian and Alaska Native men and women who have served in the United States military. Native peoples have participated in every major US military encounter from the Revolutionary War to today’s conflicts in the Middle East, serving at a higher rate in proportion to their population than any other ethnic group. The library will host this exhibit from February 26th through March 30th.
- “Opening Doors: Contemporary African American Academic Surgeons,” on exhibit during September 2018, celebrates the achievements of medical pioneers by highlighting four contemporary pioneer African American surgeons and educators who exemplify excellence in their fields and believe in continuing the journey of excellence through the education and mentoring of young African Americans pursuing medical careers. “Opening Doors” was produced by the National Library of Medicine.
