Durham Museum needs your help to crowdsource a new project!

This just in from the Durham Museum!

“Good morning! The Durham Museum is embarking on its first ever crowdsourcing* project and we hope you will help us spread the word! The Durham is celebrating all things 1970s this spring and we invite the community to be part of it! The museum will host, Searching for the Seventies: The Documerica Photography Project, an exciting exhibition developed by the Smithsonian Institution’s Traveling Exhibition Service in partnership with the National Archives. We’re searching for pieces that complement this exhibition. For such a recent decade, it’s amazing how much has changed. To document this, we need your help. Raid your closets, basements and attics for objects you think would be a gas to have on display. See the attached press release or click the link below for full details.”
