American Legion Exhibition Phase 1


This project creates foundation documents, media campaign outline, and a rough draft for an exhibit regarding the Centennial of the American Legion. The creation of an American Legion Centennial exhibit will serve three strategic goals in the grantee's community: to continue to spread collections practices and safeguards to smaller organizations; drive attendance of the organization's events and exhibits; and finally, affect an increase in American Legion membership. This project is crucial to the grantee's guiding exhibit strategy – to continue to extend exhibit planning timelines, increase the quality, and amplify community awareness and investment in local history.
