Bicentennial City Exhibit
Please note, this event has expired.
In 1976, America was having its 200th birthday and Philadelphia was chosen to host the party. The celebration drew an estimated two million visitors, yet it didn’t go as planned…
Five Haverford and Bryn Mawr College students collaborated with poet Thomas Devaney to explore what de-evolved into a surreal moment in Philadelphia and national history. The exhibition Bicentennial City builds on an experimental documentary film seeking to explore the many roles myth and memory play in the psyche of a city.
