A collaborative exhibition between the Anacostia Museum and Lucy E. Moten Elementary School in Southeast Washington, D.C. The show explores the materials collected by students, teachers and adults in an Occupational Home Economics class sponsored jointly by the D. C. Public Schools Career Development Program and the Greater Southeast Center for the Aging/Project Keen. Staff from the Anacostia Museum and the Smithsonian's Office of Public Affairs came to the school to conduct workshops on the care of objects and on researching, designing and publicizing an exhibition. Objects and collectors were photographed and loan agreements completed. The records include student writings on ther colletions, describing why, how and what they collected. The exhibition was held in the Program Room at the museum from May 31, 1994 to June 19, 1994.
These records document the planning, organizing, execution, and promotion of the exhibition. Materials include correspondence, research files, artist's statements, brochures, floor plans, and exhibit labels.
