Oneonta History Center Announces March Exhibits
Beginning Saturday March 7, the Greater Oneonta Historical Society (GOHS) presents a display of the history of the local chapter of the League of Women Voters (LWV). There will be an opening reception from 2 to 3 PM on March 7 at the Oneonta History Center, 183 Main St. Representatives of the League of Women Voters of the Oneonta Area will be present at the reception, which is free and open to the public. The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization, founded in Washington, DC, in 1920. It promotes government participation within the community. The display will be based on the local chapter’s archives which have been donated to GOHS, and will run through Saturday April 18.
As part of the ongoing "Oneonta Collects History" series, GOHS member Chris Vredenburg will display “World War II in Popular Culture” at the History Center during the month of March. A selection of ephemera, with an emphasis on illustration, will illustrate some of the ways WWII was presented on the American Home Front. The items displayed will include magazines, postcards, books, and maps.
In addition, the showing of Julia Allidi's twenty Paintings of Old Oneonta has been extended to April 18.
