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.
