Crossroads Smithsonian Exhibition Tour Schedule

Crossroads: Change in Rural America is a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition drawing on the history and culture of rural America to provoke fresh thinking and spark conversations about the future and sustainability of rural communities. 

With support from Humanities Kansas and the Smithsonian, the Crossroads exhibition gives Kansas communities the chance to explore how their community has adapted to change over the last century. Hosts sites will develop a complementary exhibition that tells their community’s unique Crossroads story and create public programs that spark important conversations to enhance people’s understanding of life in rural Kansas.
