Smithsonian Poster Exhibits Focus on Migration in U.S.

Two Smithsonian poster exhibitions on display now at the Fort Morgan Museum highlight the history of migration in the United States.

The exhibits opened March 8 and will be on display in the Museum’s Lower Gallery through May 7. Both exhibits were developed for middle school and high school students.

I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story” celebrates the history of Asian and Pacific Americans in the U.S., while “Journey Stories” is a patchwork of many tales that have been woven over time. These tell of the voyages of people who traveled—both voluntarily and involuntarily— from city to city, state to state and around the world to find new opportunities.

Whether by air, land or sea, travel has played a crucial part in our economic and cultural identities.

The Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Service, supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and teacher resources by Teaching Tolerance, is providing these exhibits at no cost to schools, universities, libraries, community centers, museums, and other venues.

For more information call the museum at (970) 542-4000.
