Please look through your family photo albums. Your pictures are wanted by the Douglas County Museums for a very special exhibit.
The public is invited to submit copies of photos of any kind of fence for the “Between Fences” exhibit that the Smithsonian Institution will bring to the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center in Gardnerville. Pictures will be accepted until Sept. 15.
The exhibit committee will be collecting photos of fences of any kind from anywhere that are in the background or foreground of a picture. A brief explanation about the picture and people in them should accompany the photo. The committee will display them in the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center.
The Douglas County Historical Society will be the first museum in Nevada to get the “Museum on Main Street” traveling exhibit “Between Fences.” It will be open to the public at 10 a.m. Oct. 1. The exhibit is a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
Support of Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
Photos may be brought to the Carson Valley Museum or mailed to DCHS, 14777 Highway 395, Gardnerville, NV 89410. Call (775) 782-2555.
