Rural communities can apply for exhibit

INDIANAPOLIS —Indiana Humanities will sponsor a tour of a Smithsonian-curated exhibit called Crossroads: Change Comes to Rural America in 2019-2020. Applications are open to host the exhibit, developed by Museums on Main Street, a Smithsonian Institution program that works with rural communities to design and host high-quality exhibits and create dynamic public programs.

Six communities will be selected to host the exhibit for six weeks each, and receive extensive training, funding and  resources from the Smithsonian, Indiana Humanities and the Office of Community & Rural Affairs. Each of the six hosts will also curate a unique section of the exhibit that tells the story of their community. Up to 10 additional communities will receive $1,500 grants to develop programs, mini-exhibits and projects.

Host organizations should be located in communities of 15,000 or fewer people. Tax-exempt organizations including libraries, museums, historical societies, local governments and civic organizations can apply to host the exhibit. Host organizations receive a $2,000 grant to cover costs from Indiana Humanities, the Smithsonian and the Office of Community & Rural Affairs.
