Ron Keller, curator of the museum, says the exhibit tells the story
of America. "This exhibit is a stirring display of photographs,
images and documents that showcases all aspects of America," he
said. "The various themes include American landscapes, architecture,
people and lifestyles, travel, sports and leisure, icons and
leaders, and entertainment."
Keller hopes the exhibit will
stimulate the public's imagination. "After viewing the display I was
filled with patriotism, and feel the public will gain a deeper
appreciation for this country's greatness that can be found in
limitless examples," he said.
