Date: Tuesday, March 27, 2018, 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Host: Historical Society of Federal Way
Address: 2645 S 312th Street, Federal Way 98003
Program: Fire & Rescue Exhibit – Plus an Exhibits ‘How-to’
Please join AKCHO on March 27 when Federal Way Historical Society’s new exhibit on South King’s Fire & Rescue history will be the springboard for a presentation and discussion on what makes a good exhibit. Based in Federal Way, the fire department covers 41 square miles, protects 150,000 people, and is made up of what used to be five former fire districts.
We’ll have time to view the new exhibit and then Patricia Cosgrove, museum director of the White River Valley Museum, will share her insights. Patricia was entrusted with designing what became the award-winning, permanent exhibits at White River. For this presentation, she’ll address the question: “Is displaying a bunch of similar things an exhibit?”
Exhibits are “a way to further cross cultural understanding,” Patricia says, summarizing her exhibit philosophy as “engaging the eye with unusual and beautiful things and meeting some interesting characters!”
Following the meeting, 4Culture will hold a funding workshop for the Cultural Equipment funding program from 1-2 PM. (Application deadline will be May 16.)
