Traveling Exhibit Schedule

To accommodate interest in our traveling exhibit, two sets of exhibit banners will travel the state in 2017. Please check both routes below to find a community host near you. If you would like to serve as a community host during an unscheduled time slot, please complete our interest form.

We’re also pleased to announce that the Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will host the exhibit April 5-30, 2018.

We wish to thank our community partners as well as the co-sponsors for this portion of our project: the UI Office of Outreach and Engagement, Humanities Iowa, the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG), and the Netzwerk Deutsch program of the Federal Republic of Germany.
