Voices and Votes Opening Reception at Sulphur Springs Museum

March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center welcomes the Smithsonian’s “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America,” an immersive and thought-provoking exploration of the evolution of democracy in the United States. Through photographs, objects, film, audio, and interactives, Voices and Votes explores the nearly 250-year-old American experiment of a government of, by and for the people. This opening event includes comments from local dignitaries, performances by community youth groups, hands-on activities from community partners, and opportunities to register to vote and receive voting resources.

The exhibit is on view through May 19. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. with speaker events on Sunday afternoons. Admission is free but a donation of $5 is suggested.

Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the local exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
