The Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit Voices and Votes: Democracy in America

Allendale was selected as a site for this exhibit, which has been touring the country.

"Voices and Votes is based on a major exhibition currently on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. This Museum on Main Street adaptation will have many of the same dynamic features: historical and contemporary photos; educational and archival video; engaging multimedia interactives with short games and additional footage, photos, and information; and historical objects like campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia, and protest material.
Our democracy demands action, reaction, vision, and revision as we continue to question how to form “a more perfect union.” How do you participate as a citizen? From the revolution and suffrage, to civil rights and casting ballots, everyone in every community is part of this ever-evolving story – the story of democracy in America."

The exhibit is part of a grant submitted by the Allendale Rural Arts Team (ART) who is partnering USC-Salkehatchie to host the exhibit. Lottie Lewis worked hard to get this exhibit to come to Allendale.

The exhibit will be hosted by USC Salkehatchie from September 10 to October 22.
