Kudos to Museum for their 75th Anniversary Exhibit

| September 10, 2012 | 1 Comment

I’m hearing great things about the new exhibit “Greenbelt:  The First 75 Years, 1937-2012 by the Greenbelt Museum, on display at the Community Center.  According to their website, the exhibit “examines Greenbelt’s history in timeline form and features photographs, ephemera, and artifacts from Greenbelt’s 75 year history.  Through an interactive feature in the exhibition, Greenbelters are invited to share important dates and moments in their own lives – so bring copies of photos to leave at the exhibition, or jot down favorite memories of Greenbelt experiences while you’re there.”  Very cool!

So cool, in fact, that the Friends of the Museum won a $1,600 grant from Anacostia Trails Heritage Area Inc. for the exhibit.

I asked if I should hurry on down to the Community Center to see this but was relieved to hear the exhibit will be there for at least a year, maybe more.   Monday-Saturday  from 9am-10pm, and Sundays 9am-7pm.  And of course it’s free.
