STONEWALL EXHIBIT EXTENDED THROUGH NOVEMBERNovember 01, 2021
(CORPUS CHRISTI) – The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is extending the “50 Years: The Stonewall Uprising” exhibit located in the McGregor Studio throughout the month of November. The exhibit is a partnership between the Mosaic Project of South Texas (also known as PRIDE Corpus Christi), the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History and the Stonewall National Museum and Archives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
“The response to the Stonewall exhibit has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Tom Tagliabue, President of the Mosaic Project of South Texas. “We are grateful the leadership at the Corpus Christi Museum wants to extend the exhibit for another month to allow more opportunities for the public to learn about LGBTQIA+ History and to be enlightened about the people and actions that drive the movement.”
Carol Rehtmeyer, President/CEO of the Corpus Christi Museum reiterated the museum embraces the value of inclusivity and aims to share the importance of diverse groups and cultures through incredible exhibits such as the Stonewall exhibit. “Telling stories of triumph, of strife, of challenge is very important to us and our mission,” Rehtmeyer said. “We are pleased to extend the exhibit another month and share history through these stories to educate and engage the public.”
The Museum welcomes all visitors and continues to sell three styles of PRIDE socks in its Gift Shop for $10. The museum, located on 1900 N. Chaparral Street, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. The museum is closed on Monday.
