The Identity Project @ Tallahassee Museum
Jul 4 @ 9:00 am – Jan 2 @ 10:00 am

identity-crisisOn July 4, the Tallahassee Museum will debut a six-month exhibit entitled “The Identity Project.” Housed in the Phipps Gallery, this interactive exhibit will engage visitors in conversations about the meaning of identity and how it relates to them personally. During the course of the exhibit, visitors will journey through different sections that will target various poignant questions about a person’s identity:

Who are you? Where do you call home? What do you do? How do you define your community? What does your stuff say about you? How do we see each other?

This exhibit will shed light on the numerous factors that influence and shape our personalities, selves, and even our community. Witness how the various environments we immerse into and social media that inundates us daily inevitably impacts our personal perspectives. Artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection and on loan from community members will be used to spark discussions among those exploring the exhibit. These objects will inspire visitors to get together in a unique fashion, reflect on memories past, express viewpoints, and allow them to tell their personal stories.

Admission to “The Identity Project” is free for members of the Museum, as well as active military families until Labor Day, and included in general ticket purchases for all others.

Oct 11 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm

The Twenty first Annual Tallahassee Sacred Harp Singing will take place at the historic Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church here at the Museum. Sacred Harp, also known as shape-note singing or fasola, is a living tradition of a capella community hymn singing.  Singers sit in a “hollow square” with treble, alto, tenor, and bass with one voice part on each. The walls of the church will ring with the sound of the unique Sacred Harp harmonies that have been described as haunting and deeply moving. Visitors and attendees are welcome to listen or to join in the singing.  Singers that arrive with Sacred Harp hymn books will not be charged admission.
