Past Exhibits

  • Unclassified: The Military Kid Art Show

    The contemporary art exhibit explored the American Military B.R.A.T., an invisible subculture.

  • The Racehorse, the Royals, and the Writer: The Legacy of Herman B. Duryea

    This exhibit told the intriguing story of American racehorse Durbar II and his victory over the horse of King George V at the Epsom Derby in 1914—just at the outbreak of World War I. Owned by Herman B. Duryea, uncle of Robert Heighe, Durbar II lived at Prospect Hill Farm (now the Hays-Heighe House) and is interred on the property. The exhibit also related information about the British Royal Family’s passion for all equestrian sports, then and now, the use of horses in World War I, and the activity of British suffragettes at the start of the 20th century.

  • War of 1812: Bicentennial Observance Exhibit

  • Faces of Freedom: The Upper Chesapeake, Maryland, and Beyond

    What does freedom mean to you? This exhibit brought to life the stories of documented individuals who sought or fought for freedom and whose lives engaged and inspired. The Faces of Freedom initiative commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Maryland Constitution of 1864, which ended slavery in the state.

    Faces of Freedom was made possible by a grant from the Maryland Humanities Council through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
