Your photo memories can be a part of the May 4 Visitors Center exhibit!
Gallery I of the exhibit (opening in 2012) tells the story of May 4th set against the backdrop of changes of life in the 1960s: the struggle for social justice, the generation gap, and Vietnam. Consider being a part of the exhibit. Send your home photos to show what people from all walks of life looked like, what they cared about, and what they did as they experienced the ’60s.
Photos should be your property and taken between 1950 and 1970. Submit up to 10 photos.
Photos must be sent by July 31, 2012.
You must electronically sign the user agreement by checking the box in Step 2 in order for your photos to qualify and be considered for use in the exhibit.
