Deadline Extended for May 4 Museum Photo Submissions
Photos from 1960s will help tell story at campus exhibit
Kent State University has extended its deadline for photo submissions for the May 4 Visitors Center.
The university's call for photos is to highlight the cultural transitions of the 1960s by showing what "people from all walks of life looked like, what they cared about and what they did as they experienced the 1960s."
The new deadline is Wednesday, Dec. 21. Guidelines for submitting photos are available on the university website.
The photos will be displayed in Gallery I of the May 4 Visitor's Center exhibit, which is set to open in 2012. Photo submissions are reviewed weekly with the favorite photo of the week winner getting a commemorative T-shirt from the 40th anniversary of the shootings.
The museum will be located in Taylor Hall, not far from the spot where the shootings took place. It will include an interior gallery to immerse visitors in the crucial 24 minutes leading up to the shootings. The overall intent of the museum is to tell the story of the shootings contextualized in the 1960s.
