BRING THE SMITHSONIAN TO YOUR TOWN BY HOSTING Crossroads: Change in Rural America
Crossroads: Change in Rural America is a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition drawing on the history and culture of rural America to provoke fresh thinking and spark conversations about the future and sustainability of rural communities.
Crossroads: Change in Rural America offers small towns a chance to look at their own paths over the past century and to highlight the changes that affected their fortunes. The exhibition will prompt discussions about what happened when America’s rural population became a minority of the country’s population and the ripple effects that continue today.
With support from Colorado Humanities and the Smithsonian, the Crossroads exhibition gives Colorado communities the chance to explore how their community has adapted to change. Host sites will develop a complementary exhibit and programming that tells their community’s unique Crossroads story and sparks important conversations about local issues.
