    UCM Over There: Missouri and the Great War Exhibit

    All day
    April 1, 2021-June 7, 2021

    Over There: Missouri and the Great War Exhibit brings together resources from archives, museums, and collections across the state to allow Missourians from many communities to learn about the state’s role in WWI in ways that they might not otherwise be able to do without traveling to another city. The exhibit broadens interest in history, helps residents connect to local history and Missouri heritage, and promotes tourism in a variety of Missouri communities.  Created by the Greene County Public Library, Springfield, Missouri. The exhibit, sponsored and supported by the History program at UCM, the Kirkpatrick library, and the UCM Military and Veterans Services program, will be on display in the Kirkpatrick Library on the campus of the University of Central Missouri during the normal operating hours of the library from March 1, 2021 to May 7, 2021. It will be accessible to the campus community and to the general public.

    All day
    April 1, 2021-March 3, 2022

    Post Mail Art Projekt 2021: Show Me Mail Art is part of an ongoing mail art project by Post Art Library in Joplin, Mo. The 2021 theme – “Show Me” – is inspired by the Missouri Bicentennial, thus Missourians in particular are encouraged to participate. Mail art is a highly accessible form of art that anyone can participate in. Our goal is to receive mail art from 200 Missourians, as well people from across the world. Many pieces received will be a part of the mail art exhibit, which will be inside Joplin Public Library from March 1, 2021 – January 31, 2022, and all pieces will become a part of our mail art collection. The 2021 exhibit and call for mail art is in partnership with Connect2Culture and Joplin Public Library.
