Vote Here Exhibition to Close in September
Frankfort, Ky—(August 28, 2008)—Visitors who hope to see the Vote Here exhibition, a collection of political memorabilia on display at the Old State Capitol, need to act soon. The exhibition will close September 8.
Vote Here highlights the importance of campaign materials in developing public perceptions of candidates’ images. It features bumper stickers, posters, and buttons.
The collection was donated to the Kentucky Historical Society by Drexell R. Davis, former Kentucky treasurer and secretary of state. Visitors can view the collection and also tour the Old State Capitol, which is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Old State Capitol, completed in 1830, served as Kentucky’s capitol building from 1830 to 1910 and is located on the Kentucky Historical Society’s history campus. The campus also includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History and the Kentucky Military History Museum, which is currently closed for renovation.
Admission to all sites on the Kentucky Historical Society campus is $4 for adults, $2 for youth ages 6 to 12, and complimentary for children under 5.
