Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site in Indianapolis has partnered with the IUPUI School of Liberal Arts Museum Studies program on their first exhibit together through the New Century Curators initiative.
The exhibit, “New Women of the Harrison Era,” looks at social change through the lens of three women whose lives intersected with Benjamin Harrison: Frances Benjamin Johnston, Belva Lockwood and Nancy Clem. Each of them affected public opinion concerning women’s roles in society, albeit in very different ways. One came to prominence through photography, another in political advocacy and the third through a nationally recognized murder trial.
“This is a groundbreaking partnership and a fascinating exhibit,” said Charles Hyde, president and CEO of the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. “IUPUI is a great asset to our community and has been very open to working together on impactful ideas and projects promoting civic education and innovation, so we were very excited by their involvement.”
The “New Women of the Harrison Era” exhibit will be open through October.
