Our Museum on Main Street tour of Voices and Votes: Democracy in America has launched: the tour kicked off Allegany Museum! For Museum on Main Street, a Smithsonian exhibition tours the state. Local host venues and their partners present companion exhibits and programs: this year, these exhibits explore our democracy, examine our civic responsibility, and reflect on how we lift voices in our communities. Frostburg State University, one of Allegany Museum’s partners, created an exhibit that features memorabilia and Western Maryland people in public service. We spoke to Yelizaveta L Zakharova, Librarian at Frostburg’s Lewis J. Ort Library, about the companion exhibit and her experience.

In 2019-2020, we explored the human relationship to water in multiple programs in 2019-2020: Maryland H2O tied together this array of programming, and some of our partners' programs. As the year comes to a close, Maryland H2O officially ends. Theresa Worden, Traveling Exhibitions and Program Evaluation at Maryland Humanities, led the initiative: she reflects on it here.
