MUSEUM TOUR: Indivisible: Stories of American Community

The museum exhibition, Indivisible: Stories of American Community, developed from a partnership between the Center for Creative Photography and the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. Funded by The Pew National Trusts, this national documentary project features twelve diverse communities where grassroots activism is effective--as seen through the distinctive visions of some of the nation’s most original photographers and as heard through compelling interviews by leading folklorists and oral historians.

The museum exhibition is organized and circulated by the Center for Creative Photography. The national tour includes eight museums throughout the United States.

Opening in Chicago and traveling to numerous cities, including Albany, Dallas, Denver, Ithaca, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Stony Brook, Tucson, and Washington, D.C., the postcard exhibition is intended to reach a broad audience. These installations feature free postcards and an interactive computer station that allows visitors to record their own stories of community. Some participating museums will also offer this interactive computer station. By the completion of the tour, three million free postcards will have been distributed. Ask your local museum for the postcard exhibition site nearest you.    This page last updated September 24, 2000.
