Celebrate the Sixties CLOSES this weekend!

All good things must come to an end...

The popular Celebrate the Sixties exhibit closes in the Keller Gallery this Sunday, June 5. It has been a tremendous success! And I'm sorry to see it come down. Although, I would like our convertible back since it is finally car show season!

The exhibit inspired many of you to donate 20th century items to our permanent collection. The backlog of new donations in my department is significant! But the artifacts are wonderful.

Next week the people who loaned items are coming in to pick up their stuff, and work will begin on installing our next exhibit -- Green Revolution. We've been working behind-the-scenes for months to get ready. This exhibit has an important message -- we are the stewards of this planet and we MUST think about how we are spending our limited natural resources! There are many simple things we can all do to help. This exhibit will show you how.

Change will come from the bottom up, meaning children "get" the message and are going to teach their parents why it is important to recycle, compost, and explore alternative energy sources.

My schedule for the Keller Gallery is always diverse, because we want to attract as many different audiences as possible. So we will go from the 1960s to green technologies to the history of Christmas! And that's just our 2011 schedule. Just wait 'til you see what we've planned for 2012.

There's lots of fun ahead, so we hope you'll stop by to see what's new in the Keller Gallery. Green Revolution opens on Friday June 17 with a FREE opening reception from 6 to 8 PM. We'll see you there!
