Museum on Main Street was excited to work with new Smithsonian Affiliate Grinnell College on the new exhibition Grinnell Works, which opens today at the Drake Community Library! The college is one of ten organizations across the nation participating in a pilot project called Starter Kit: WORK, which helps communities develop new exhibitions in collaboration with the Smithsonian.
Students in DeKalb County, Illinois have teamed up with DeKalb County History Center to contribute their insights to the conversation around how the area is changing and making videos for Museum on Main Street's Stories: YES initiative. Since January, students have been conducting interviews with farmers, peers and others to explore the future of agriculture.
Our "Be Here: Main Street" partners at the MuseWeb Foundation provide great resources and advice on collecting local stories, using multimedia to illuminate the story, and using multiple digital platforms to distribute local stories.
