Smithsonian Exhibit at Arthurdale Heritage
The West Virginia Humanities Council is sponsoring a special West Virginia tour of the new Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition, Crossroads: Change In Rural America, beginning August 2021 through June 2022.
The exhibit examines the present-day turning point at which many rural American towns find themselves. Since the early 1900s, rural America has experienced significant changes in demographics, educational opportunities, access to services, and economic viability. Today, the population of the nation’s rural areas is less than half of what it was in 1900, yet America’s small towns continue to creatively focus on new opportunities for growth and development. Economic innovation, including investment in cultural and creative economies, has helped many communities create their own renaissance. We are excited to announce that Arthurdale Heritage, Inc. has been selected as a venue to host the exhibit while it tours West Virginia. This will take place from Jan. 12-Feb. 16, 2022.
