SOLD OUT - The 1968 Exhibit with Curator Brian Horrigan

Join Brian Horrigan, AB'72, as he recounts how The 1968 Exhibit was assembled and evolved while traveling from coast to coast.


The immersive exhibit transports visitors back to 1968. Organized chronologically, the experience begins in January with a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter that has “landed” in an American living room and concludes in December with a replica Apollo 8 Command Module. The sights and sounds of this media-saturated age fill the exhibit. Interactive lounges feature iconic artifacts including a suede vest worn by Jimi Hendrix, a Beatles “Yellow Submarine” lunch box, and a sweater and shoes worn by Fred Rogers. The exhibit was created in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum, and the Oakland Museum of California.
