Sharing community voices for new MSU Museum exhibit

Contact(s): Lora Helou MSU Museum office: (517) 432-3357

The community shared its voice with the Michigan State University Museum for a new exhibit opening May 12.

Through social media, MSU Museum educators asked community members to contribute images and ideas, sights and sounds for "VOICE," which will run through July 28 in the Heritage Gallery.

The exhibit, created especially for the busy spring field trip season, offers an in-depth and interactive look at the way we communicate. Think: roar, sing, cry, whisper, persuade, converse.

The MSU Museum also tapped its extensive collections as the science and culture museum on campus to help set the stage. African drums, growling big cats, rattling snakes, political buttons, Morse Code transmitters and more are featured. Interactives, such as a "word wall" and a "sound station," will capture and share more visitors' voices in the gallery.
