Box 6228, Leesburg, VA 20178 Contact: Jackie Ly, Museum Engagement Manager, jly@morvenpark.org Museum on Main Street Tour 2021-2022: Crossroads: Change in Rural America Tour Logistics ? Currently, each site has the tour for 5 full weeks. • The starting date of each site is a Saturday, the closing date is a Sunday. Timing Between Sites ? We have left 2 full weeks between each site, to allow for packing, shipping, and unpacking. Each site will need to work with the site adjacent to them on the schedule to determine the best timing for shipping/ arrival, so that the new site has ample time to set up the exhibition before their opening date Next Steps ? VAM will be announcing the final tour schedule on Friday, December 18th. After that point, you are welcome and encouraged to share the news of your spot on the tour with your local press, and start getting people excited!! ? We will have a series of online conversations with all 6 sites in the new year; in the meantime, you should be receiving a packet of resources from the Smithsonian to help you get started with your planning. ? Normally, the Smithsonian sends staff with the exhibition to the first site on tour, in this case Hanover County Museum of History and Culture. It is good for each site on the tour to have someone at that installation so you can see how to do it when the exhibition arrives at your site. Because we aren’t sure what COVID will look like in August, please set aside the week before the exhibition opening of August 28, 2021—we may move this installation demo to an online format, or we may be able to welcome people to Hanover to see the demo in person.
