The 1968 Project

Planning for a traveling exhibition, a website, and associated programming on America in the 1960s.

The Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) seeks support from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the amount of $75,000 to continue research and development for The 1968 Project exhibition. In partnership with three other leading historical institutions--the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum, and the Oakland Museum of California--MHS is conducting a nationwide search for stories, images, and objects that illuminate the great and small events of 1968. Products of this documentary project will include a traveling exhibition, a Web site, public and educational programs, and a film competition. The budget for the exhibition, estimated at $2,850,000, will be raised from a combination of public, foundation, and corporate sponsorship sources.
