Deadline Extended to Submit Photos for Kent State’s May 4 Visitors Center ExhibitPosted Nov. 28, 2011
The deadline to submit photos from the '60s for the development of the new May 4 Visitors Center has been extended to Dec. 21.
Kent State faculty, staff, alumni and community members can contribute to the development of the new center by uploading pictures that show what people looked like, what they experienced and what they cared about in the '60s.
The May 4 Visitors Center at Kent State will tell the May 4 story, set against the political and cultural changes of the 1960s. The center will be located in Taylor Hall, adjacent to the May 4 Memorial on the Kent Campus.
“Selected photos will be displayed in the May 4 Visitors Center’s first gallery, which sets the May 4 story in its time,” says Laura Davis, professor of English and faculty coordinator for May 4 initiatives. “We’re looking for home photos taken between 1950 and 1970. We’d like to show people from all walks of life, engaging in their everyday lives in the '60s.”
Photos will be reviewed weekly, and a prize will be awarded for the favorite photo of the week. The winner will receive a May 4 40th commemoration T-shirt, which was designed by a student.
