The 1968 Exhibit with Curator Brian Horrigan

October 02, 2018
5:00pm - 8:00pm
Minnesota History Center, Honeywell Rm, 2nd Floor, 345 W. Kellogg Blvd., Saint Paul, MN 55102
$15

Join Brian Horrigan, UChicago AB ’72, as he recounts how The 1968 Exhibit was assembled and evolved while traveling from coast to coast. Organized by the UChicago and Harvard clubs.

The immersive exhibit transports visitors back to 1968. Organized chronologically, the experience begins in January with a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter that has “landed” in an American living room and concludes in December with a replica Apollo 8 Command Module. The sights and sounds of this media-saturated age fill the exhibit. Interactive lounges feature iconic artifacts including a suede vest worn by Jimi Hendrix, a Beatles “Yellow Submarine” lunch box, and a sweater and shoes worn by Fred Rogers. The exhibit was created in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum, and the Oakland Museum of California.

Parking is available at the History Center parking lot for $6.00.

Cost includes reception and talk in the Honeywell Room. Admission to the museum, including The 1986 Exhibit and other MNHC exhibits, is free on Tuesday nights.

Become a TCAN Member

Interested alumni organizations must meet each of the requirements listed below to qualify for membership in TCAN. All new applications are reviewed by the TCAN membership board. To learn more about our association or to request affiliation, please contact us.

New to the area? We invite interested alumni to contact their local affiliated clubs for membership and to receive upcoming TCAN event notifications. You're also invited to join our TCAN LinkedIn Group.

01/04

Nationally Ranked

We believe that the overall ranking number is a sufficient surrogate for a measure of quality. Therefore the college or university must have been nationally ranked as a top‐50 college or university, according to U.S. News and World Report, within each of the last three years.

02/04

Located Outside of Minnesota

TCAN was founded as a support group for university alumni organizations from colleges located primarily outside the Midwest. A geographical eligibility criterion ensures that alumni groups with a significant membership base will not dominate TCAN events.

03/04

Undergrad Population of Less than 10,000

We believe that the size of a college's undergraduate program offers a surrogate measure of not only the quality of the school, but also the type of cultural experience that embodies a program of liberal arts education and instills a love of learning.

04/04

Alumni Org. must be a Bona Fide Club

We feel it is important that all member clubs are sanctioned, well‐established, and able to contribute to the Network upon admission. Therefore all organizations seeking membership must typically have at least 10 members and 2 years of operating history.
