Through powerful imagery and audio, visitors experience their personal stories of the brutal conflict and how it shaped their lives.

This innovative exhibition includes 20 large-format photographs and 10 tactile versions of the original photographs with touch-activated sensors that provide audio interviews with the Marines shown in the photos. The three-dimensional tactile prints allow blind and sighted individuals to experience photography in a unique way. Ten Marines were interviewed for the exhibition, some of whom shared their stories publicly for the first time.

Abraham Lincoln: President, Emancipator, Corporate Pitchman

Abraham Lincoln is regarded as one of the greatest leaders in American history. This tactile exhibition tells his story and discusses how, following his assassination, his legacy was embraced by politicians, the US Government, and advertisers to promote their causes and sell their products, a practice that continues today.

Lincoln spent his early years in poverty and was a self-taught lawyer who rose through the ranks of American politics during one of its most divisive and turbulent periods. Lincoln’s leadership carried the nation through the American Civil, preserved the Union, and abolished slavery by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation. His life is a lesson in grit, compassion, and perseverance.

Lincoln became an icon during his life, but this was amplified when he was assassinated in 1865. Since his death, Lincoln has become a permanent part of the American spirit. The mythology surrounding him has grown, and his image and life have been appropriated across a broad cultural spectrum.

Founding Father: George Washington

‘Founding Father: George Washington’ shares the story of George Washington. As general and Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, he was a bastion of hope, courage, and strength while leading his forces to victory over the British during the American Revolution.

In addition to being a successful general, Washington was also a gifted statesman and politician. He served as the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797 and presided over the Constitutional Convention, an undertaking which established the United States Constitution and laid the foundation for modern democracy. For these accomplishments, as well as many others, Washington is often referred to as the ‘Father of His Country’ and has served as a model for politicians and public servants for nearly 250 years. Many of the precedents he instituted during his professional life are still revered and practiced today.
