Event Description
The Sullivan Museum and History Center will host a new pop-up exhibition from the National Archives, "The Bill of Rights and You," commemorating the 225th anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document. "The Bill of Rights and You" spotlights one of the most remarkable periods in American history, explores the origins of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution (collectively known as the Bill of Rights), illustrates how each amendment protects U.S. citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments. "The Bill of Rights and You" invites visitors to connect directly with the people, places, and events that mark this historic document’s evolution. This exhibit runs through Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017. 

There will also be a display in the Museum's Rotunda where students can leave a comment on a post-it about,  "What Freedom Means to You?" Some of the comments will be shared on the museum's Facebook page.

(**we are exercising free speech on most of what people put up there, unless it involves profanity, any harassment or names of people). 

"The Bill of Rights and You" is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration, and traveled by the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service (NATES). This exhibition was developed in collaboration with the National Archives’ National Outreach Initiative to commemorate the 225th Anniversary of the Bill of Rights. The exhibition is presented in part by AT&T, Seedlings Foundation, and the National Archives Foundation. 

This pop up will be in the Museum Rotunda until Feb. 28, 2017, and coincides with the museum's Lunch and Learn on Feb. 22,  2017.
