The traveling 1968 exhibit provides an interpretive journey through this pivotal year by presenting each month as a separate exhibit topic and space. The completed exhibit first appeared at the Minnesota Historical Society and now travels various cities throughout the nation. Maple & Associates was asked to consolidate the various design components and provide CAD rendered views and walk-thru animations for planning study, investor presentation and new venue reconfiguration.

The Minnesota Historical Society, in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum and the Oakland Museum of California, brings this major exhibition documenting this turbulent year. The 1968 Exhibit is an ambitious, state-of-the-art, multi-media exhibit that looks at how the experiences of the year fueled a persistent, if often contradictory, sense of identity for the people who were there. It is the unsettled nature of the debate about damage done or victories won that makes an exhibit on this subject so compelling and urgent. The exhibit is supported by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
