The Friends of the Museums will hold our seventh annual fundraiser An Evening at the Museum, now entitled “Campus Martius Experience” on Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 5PM-8PM at Campus Martius Museum.
Experience two centuries of history and discovery squeezed into one unforgettable evening. This fundraiser will benefit the operations of the Campus Martius & Ohio River Museums. The unique partnership between state and community is thriving because of the support of area residents. As always, your $60 ticket will include adult libations for every taste, mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres provided by local caterers, live music, and each ticket holder will be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 3 museum store gift certificates!
This year, Campus Martius has partnered with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH to bring the renowned photography exhibit “Girls to the Front” to our historic museum. Everything about “Girls to the Front” is larger than life, starting with the 42 one-of-a-kind photos by renowned rock photographer Anastasia Pantsios. Photos of female rock icons Tina Turner, Patti Smith, Joan Jett, and Grace Slick are just a few of the amazing women you’ll see honored in this exhibit. “Girls to the Front” finally puts these pioneering women front and center which is precisely where they belong.
To bring the exhibit to life, local talented musicians and female vocalists who have made their own musical impact in the Mid Ohio Valley will be performing the hits that made these groundbreaking Rock & Roll Hall of “Famers” the women who broke the glass ceiling in the previously male-dominated world of rock.
