Crossroads: Change in Rural America exhibit opens
The Oklahoma Historical Society, in cooperation with Oklahoma Humanities, is pleased to announce that the Smithsonian Institution Museum on Main Street traveling exhibition Crossroads: Change in Rural America is coming to Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum from March 26 to May 7, 2022. The traveling exhibit will be on display in the historic Big Barn on the Pawnee Bill Ranch.
Oklahomans will have a unique opportunity to consider their crossroads stories through the exhibit’s themes of rural identity, community, land, perseverance, and managing change. Each site will engage visitors in complementary programming, celebrating their town’s history and accomplishments and addressing community concerns. Please contact the Pawnee Community Chamber of Commerce for more information and to volunteer to help with the community events that coincide with this exhibit in the town of Pawnee by calling 918-762-2108.
Crossroads: Change in Rural America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the US Congress. This exhibit will visit six communities in Oklahoma on its tour of the state, including two OHS sites—Fort Gibson Historic Site and Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum.
