Exhibition Preview Celebration

Thursday, September 19, 2019
By Invitation Only
Events for Donors

President’s Fellows, Newberry Associates at the Humanists level and above, and other friends of the Newberry are invited to a cocktail reception celebrating the arrival of our new President, Daniel Greene, and the opening of our new exhibition, What is the Midwest?.

Often called “the Heartland” or “flyover country,” the Midwest tends to be essentialized as a homogeneous, empty space between the American coasts. This exhibition challenges the assumptions, stereotypes, and persistent narratives about the Midwest, exploring the confluence of peoples and environmental conditions that has defined the region and made it unique.

Reservations are essential, as space is limited. RSVP by September 5, 2019 to Jo Anne Moore at moorej@newberry.org.

For more information on becoming a member, please contact Vince Firpo, Director of Individual Giving, at firpov@newberry.org.

What is the Midwest? is funded by a major grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
