“Tusculum at 225” Exhibit to Open at Old Oak Festival
Museum studies students under the leadership of Dr. Peter Noll have been hard at work creating a new exhibit that explores the storied history of Tennessee’s oldest institution of higher learning.
“Tusculum at 225” will be open to the public beginning April 20th, a reception is planned during the Old Oak Festival. After the opening, the exhibit will be a permanent fixture in the President Andrew Johnson Museum, which is free and open to the public.
Senior museum studies student Alex Rollison is part of the exhibit team that is putting on finishing touches in advance of next month’s opening. “Working on the new exhibit has been an insightful experience in more than just the research aspect,” said Alex. “Creating interpretative panels and building exhibit components is fantastic real world experience. While researching my time period I was able to learn more about the civic arts that Tusculum has put an emphasis on in the last 30 years.”
The President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library houses exhibits dedicated to the 17th president and his family, the history of Tusculum, and the institutional archive. Researchers are welcome by appointment. To visit the museum and archive, call 423-636-8554 or email email@example.com to schedule a visit.
