Exhibition: The 125th Anniversary of the Parthenon (1897-2022)

October 1, 2022

HICD-USA initiated and co-sponsored an education exhibition at John Early Middle Museum Magnet School, Nashville (October-December 2022) as students under the direction of Lyndell Edmondson presented the city's only exhibition focusing exclusively on the Parthenon anniversary.

Students (grades 5-8) researched the Parthenon history as the centerpiece of the 1897 Tennessee Centennial Exposition, and designed and curated the three month exhibition. Housed in their state-of-the-art museum space, students worked with museums and collectors on obtaining artifact loans, and brought together artifacts and historic photographs and on-loan videos, wrote and created informative text panels, and served as expert docents throughout the exhibition honoring this iconic Nashville structure.
