Overview

Making Alabama. A Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit is a statewide celebration of 200 years of statehood presented by Alabama Humanities Foundation in partnership with Alabama Department of Archives and History and Alabama Bicentennial Commission.

The exhibit will crisscross the state March 2018 through November 2019, touring all 67 of Alabama’s counties with up to three-week engagements in each host community.

The exhibit features:

Eight periods of history that defined Alabama as a state – decisions and turning points that shaped what the state would become and what it will be – all in an impressive display to retrace our state’s footsteps featuring people, places and cultures that are still Making Alabama.

Interactive displays to engage audiences.

Local exhibits and events created by host communities to showcase their own roles in Alabama history and culture, present and future.

Join us for this truly historic event, a celebration 200 years in the making!
