The banner announcing the upcoming temporary exhibit at the Capital City Museum about the 1964 Freedom March on Frankfort has gone up.  “The day is here, the time is now” exhibit will open on March 4th and will remain in place through August 31st.  The exhibit will feature photographs, films, and objects that tell the story of that critical event in the civil rights movement in Kentucky. Enlarged photographs taken in Frankfort on that historic day make up most of the exhibit.  The still images are reinforced by films, some of which have never before been seen by the public, and video interviews with key participants. The exhibit will open with a reception for the public at 6:00PM on Tuesday, March 4th.  There is no admission charge to enter the museum or to see the exhibit.  The museum is at 325 Ann Street in downtown Frankfort.  The City of Frankfort’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Sites operates the Capital City Museum.  The museum’s normal hours of operation are 10AM to 4PM, Monday through Saturday.  For more information, call 502-696-0607.
