Motown in Black and White (August 30 – November 10, 2013)
This engaging photographic exhibit explores the impact that Motown had on both breaking down racial barriers in younger generations and shaping American culture. Via original photos and memorabilia, this engaging exhibit explores the impact that Motown music had on shaping American culture in the mid-to-late 20th century. Visitors will be transported back in time through music made famous by Motown while learning how this musical revolution has captured the souls of so many fans through the years.
Motown in Black and White is composed of historical items from the personal collection of Al Abrams, the founding publicist of Motown and its public relations director during the label’s glory days. From photos collected over the years to apparel worn by famous Motown artists, Abrams’ archive of historical Motown items is very impressive.
The exhibit not only presents a great opportunity for adults to reminisce about days gone by; Motown in Black and White also caters to school children as it features curriculum that aligns with Kentucky and Indiana Core Content Standards. This allows for integration of the classroom with real-life cultural experiences.
