Starting on May 20th the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit, “Searching for the ‘70s: The Documerica Photography Project,” opened at the Stearns History Museum.

According the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the Exhibit uses 90 colored photos taken for a federal photography project called Project DOCUMERICA (1971-1977). It grew from the 70’s environmental awakening, producing striking photographs of that era’s environmental problems and achievements. Around 70 Photographers are featured, including John Corn, Lyntha Scott Eiler, Danny Lyon, Flip Schulke and John H. White.

To go along with the nation-wide exhibit, the museum has put together a local exhibit of the same nature. This exhibit will run for two years.

The traveling Smithsonian exhibit will run until July 30th before moving to the next city on its 15 city tour.

The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Admission is $7 for adults; $3 for children ages 5 and older. There also is a family cap of $17. If there are any questions regarding the two exhibits, contact Eric Cheever, at or call (320) 253-8424.
