Spirited: Prohibition in America
November 28, 2015 – January 3, 2016
Spirited explores the history of Prohibition, from the dawn of the temperance movement to the unprecedented repeal of a constitutional amendment in 1933. What made the country go “dry” and how did America change during this period in history? Admission is free.
This exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Spirited: Prohibition in America is based on the exhibition American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, organized by the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, PA, in collaboration with Daniel Okrent, author of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.
CLOTH DOLLS TELL THEIR STORIES

Cloth Dolls Tell Their Stories showcases artists exploring remembrance, heritage and celebration through cloth dolls. Traditionally, dolls were created to represent a miniature human form, often used as children’s toys. These artists are transforming the meaning of the plaything by pouring tales and imagination into each doll while emphasizing the fun and whimsical.
