SD Cultural Heritage Center photo exhibit

As part of an ongoing digitization project in the South Dakota State Archives, over 11,000 historical photographic images have been scanned and made available to the public at the South Dakota Cultural Heritage Center. To announce the project, the Archives created a museum exhibit of 44 photos entitled "South Dakota Works."

I was asked to speak at the grand opening of the exhibit last week and Curator of Collections Dan Brosz recorded my brief message for YouTube broadcast. I did my best to wrap the history of photography, changes in technology and the museum exhibit into as short a speech as I could. Here it is:

The exhibit will be on display through April 29. More information about the South Dakota State Historical Society and the Cultural Heritage Center is available here.
