Graduate Students Contribute to New Exhibit at the Heritage Center

Graduate students were key contributors to the new exhibit about the local music scene at the Heritage Center of Murfreesboro and Rutherford County, a partnership between the CHP’s Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area program and the Main Street downtown revitalization organization. “Home Grown to Nationally Known: The Artistic Legacies of Murfreesboro” covers the history of the local music industry in Murfreesboro and Rutherford County. Graduate research assistants Lane Tilner, Sherry Teal, and Annabeth Hayes (shown at left during the opening of the exhibit) helped CHP director Dr. Carroll Van West write and design the exhibit. Stop by 225 West College Street, Monday-Friday from 10-3, to see the new exhibit for yourself!  Graduate students are now developing a digital exhibit to correspond with the physical exhibit.
