1968: AN EXTRAORDINARY YEAR, AN UNFORGETTABLE EXHIBIT

The year 1968 was a turning point for a generation coming of age and a
nation at war; and throughout it all, the Bay Area was at the forefront
with an emerging California counterculture. This March, the Oakland
Museum of California presents The 1968 Exhibit, a major,
multimedia exhibition examining the events of the year and how they
fueled a persistent, and often contradictory, sense of identity for the
people who were there and those who came after.

On view March 31 through August 19, 2012, in OMCA's Great Hall, The 1968 Exhibit was
developed by the Minnesota History Center, in partnership with the
Atlanta History Center, the Chicago History Museum, and the Oakland
Museum of California.
