The 1968 Exhibit


December 23, 2017 - January 21, 2019

The 1968 Exhibit returns for a final run after an acclaimed nationwide tour. It’s been 50 years since 1968: The Vietnam War, protests, assassinations. Peace signs, love-ins, psychedelic rock. From the darkest hours to the incredible highs, see the year come alive in this mind-blowing exhibit.
