Admission: $5.00 for adults; $3.00 for seniors; $2 for students and youth
This exhibit, curated by Rachel Deddens, features the stories of many of the musicians and DJs you went to school with, bands you danced to, and choirs you heard in church. The display of photographs, musical instruments, band uniforms, record, radios and more is sure to evoke fond memories. Please plan to attend and bring friends and family.
