Last call, last call!  The Park City Museum is going dry with its newest traveling exhibit, Spirited: Prohibition in America.  On display from April 5 to May 25, 2017 in the Tozer Gallery, this exhibition details “the noble experiment” from start to finish, and everything in-between.  Learn why America had a drinking problem, explore the loopholes in the Volstead Act (the law that enforced Prohibition), try your hand (err, foot!) at the Charleston dance craze, and celebrate “happy days are here again” with the repeal of Prohibition in 1933.  The exhibit features semi-immersive environments, with text, photographs, objects and interactive elements, where visitors can experience the sights and sounds of this fascinating period in American history.

This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  It is brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance.  Spirited:  Prohibition in America was organized by The National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, PA.
