Great Girls in Michigan History

Opening March 2016


We will be creating an exhibit based upon the book “Great Girls in Michigan History” by Patricia Majher, to go on display March 2016-February 2017. This exhibit will use artifacts, images, technology, and age-appropriate text to share the stories of Michigan girls under the age of 20 with diverse accomplishments and backgrounds.  After display at the Center, the exhibit will be available for travel and will continue to inspire viewers across the state.
