Centennial Exhibit Update 2/2/2022

The table behind Julia looks very familiar…

Things are moving along at the CMU Museum! Collections Manager Ron Bloomfield and Museum Student Assistant Julia Burkholder have assembled parts of what will eventually clad a wall inside the centennial exhibit. The renovations will support installation of the Midland ACS centennial exhibit and future flexible displays at the main gallery.

Fun fact: The renovations in the main gallery are made of reclaimed wood from past exhibits! This is an eco-friendly approach to new exhibit preparation. Here, Ron and Julia are shown constructing the base layer of the wall, removing old screws from recycled materials, and making sure that the first layer of the wall is sturdy and level. Stay tuned for more updates!
