The Exhibit Is Open - What Comes Next?Update #1 posted on April 05
The Alan Kulwicki Experience opens today! The exhibits are up, the games are primed and ready to go, and the everything looks great. We can't wait for all of you to join us!
So, what comes next? Well, the exhibit is certainly the high water mark for this project, but there are other tasks that needs to be completed as well. Since we began the project last year, we have taken in a number of artifacts and photographs that will need permanent care so that future exhibits and study of Alan's career can take place.
Any donation that comes in from here forward will help us preserve Alan's legacy and the items that will help future generations learn about his wonderful career and his impact. We need archival storage boxes, photo sleeves, acid-free materials for textiles, and much more. Further, we hope to put together an extensive educational program for the late summer/early fall and share more about Alan's commitment to lifelong learning.
Thanks for your continued support and interest in Alan's career. We're looking forward to all of you paying us a visit very soon!
