Snapshot of Democracy: The Eight Ohio Presidents

A county museum in northwest Ohio to retain five staff positions, hire two new curatorial positions, and host an exhibition.

The Allen County Museum will present the project Snapshot of Democracy: The Eight Ohio Presidents. It will include the exhibition Surprising Legacies: The Ohio Presidents; a scholarly exhibition catalog; humanities lectures on topics that highlight the political history and democracy of our country and Ohio; and a musical ensemble performance by the Lima Symphony Orchestra of music from the period 1840-1920 as it aligns with the time Ohio had eight presidents in office. In addition, various educational programs will be presented from school tours to curriculum development to a book club hosted by the Allen County Public Library. To further consider safety requirements due to the pandemic, technological components will be incorporated to provide access to the exhibit and lectures in-person and online.
