Events & Current Exhibits

Saturday January 11th to February 21st

 

BEYOND THE BRIGHT

 

RED COUNTER

 

Beyond the Bright Red Counter is a multi-medium exhibit by Konrad Rula, photographer and studio art and communications student at DePauw University.  

 

This exhibit will give one last look at White Cleaners, a family-run business that operated in Putnam County for more than 72 years.  Using sound, sight and motion, the exhibit features actual equipment, artifacts and the original bright red counter to tell the story of a landmark  business and the people who worked there.

 

Among interesting aspects of this exhibit, the clothes trolley has been reassembled and will have orphan cleaning hanging from it.  If you forgot your cleaning once upon a time this may be your chance to take it home!  

 

This exhibit is free and open to the community.  For more information, call the museum at 765 653-8419.   The exhibit runs until February 21st.

6:30 P.M.

Presented by James Champion.

Mr. Champion holds a BA in History and a Masters in Library Science.  He has conducted new research on Dillinger and will present his findings at this informative presentation. 

 

John Dillinger was only 31 years old when he died.  His crime spree lasted a little over a year, but his antics still capture the imagination of the public.  The program will examine Mr. Dillinger's life, "career" (including the robbery in Greencastle, the most lucrative he ever pulled), and death, as well as providing information on some of his "associates"
