Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country: A Traveling Exhibition

Implementation of a photo-panel exhibition, based on the Newberry Library's larger exhibition about the encounters of native peoples with Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery, 1804-06, to travel to 23 sites throughout the U.S.

The Newberry Library is applying for an NEH Implementation grant to fund a traveling panel exhibition "Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country: 200 Years of American History" based upon an exhibition of the same name developed by the Newberry Library (Chicago, IL) and on display from September 28, 2005 through January 14, 2006. The traveling exhibition will include photographic reproductions of approximately 60 items from the original exhibition, and travel to 23 libraries nationwide. A comprehensive Site Support Notebook will provide host libraries with resource lists and other tools for developing public programming based on the themes and topics of the exhibition. An extensive website and resource book (University of Illinois Press, forthcoming) will supplement these materials.
