Smithsonian Exhibit comes to Monroe next month

The Smithsonian is coming to Monroe next month in a touring exhibit “Hometown Teams, how sports shaped America.” It will be at the Monroe Museum from Sept. 16 – Oct. 28 courtesy of a partnership made possible by the Georgia Humanities in partnership with the University of West Georgia.

Hometown Teams  is a part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and state humanities councils nationwide and  Monroe was one of only 12 communities in the state chosen for the exhibit.

Events to go along with this exhibit in Monroe will include opening ceremonies and a Sports Reunions Day with another performance by the renowned Monroe Girls Corps.

The Walton Monroe Center for the Arts is hosting a Sports Photography Competition to go along with this unique opportunity to highlight our local sports heroes and sport memorabilia.
