Gatheround: Stories of Atlanta will be closed for maintenance on Thursday, January 5, 2017.
Unsung heroes, go-go boots and a trolley seat for two! Atlanta History Center’s newest cornerstone exhibition weaves Atlanta’s stories and artifacts together to define the narrative for our past, present and future.
This exhibition shares the stories of individuals of many different backgrounds and perspectives who helped create the Atlanta we know today through artifacts, ephemera, interactive media, recording booths, immersive experiences and dedicated spaces while setting the stage for Meet the Past museum theatre performances. It also examines how the metro area has been shaped by watershed political events and exceptional leaders while covering broad themes including Politics and Policy; Cultural Life; Family and Community; and Urban Growth and Change.
Meet the Past museum theatre performances occur in the gallery on Saturday and Sunday.
