5:00 p.m. at the Bartow History Museum: Ribbon Cutting and Opening of Exhibit
6:00 p.m. at the Booth Western Art Museum: Video Premiere and Reception
In November 1982, Cartersville resident Joe Frank Harris was elected governor of the State of Georgia. In large part, it was through his supporters in Bartow County that led the grass roots campaign that put him in this important role.
Thirty years later, Bartow History Museum will open a feature exhibition that looks back at Harris’ political career and the tremendous effort put forth by the people of Bartow County during the gubernatorial campaign.
The exhibit, “We Did This Ourselves: The Community's Effort to Elect a Governor”, will open in the Museum’s feature exhibition gallery on Thursday, September 27, 2012, with a special ribbon cutting at 5:00 p.m.
Following the ribbon cutting, there will be a premiere of a video produced in conjunction with the exhibit, featuring stories and memories of some of the campaign participants. The video will be shown in the Booth Museum’s theatre at 6:00 p.m., followed by a reception.
The public is invited to all or part of this special evening.
Dress is business casual.
The Bartow History Museum is located at 4 East Church Street in downtown Cartersville.
The Booth Museum is located directly behind the Bartow History Museum. Parking is available at both museums.
