Fireside Chat with Curator of Historic Exhibits Patty Everly
If you’re among the throngs who have marveled at Carnegie Science Center’s Miniature Railroad and Village, then you may know that each year a new model is unveiled. In 2020, Curator of Historic Exhibits Patty Everly helped to honor the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment by creating a miniature model of Daisy Lampkin’s home on 2519 Webster Avenue in the Hill District. Lampkin was an unwavering force within the Civil Rights and woman’s suffrage movements, and called Pittsburgh home for most of her adult life. Join Everly for a fireside chat as she explores Lampkin’s incredible legacy. She’ll also share insights into the technical and creative process behind bringing these historic landmarks to life each year.
This is the second half of a virtual pairing. Don’t forget to watch the recording of Standing Up for Change: African American Women and the Civil Rights Movement on February 10.
The Miniature Railroad & Village® is presented by Reach Cyber Charter School, and the Centennial Celebration is sponsored by Tender Care Learning Centers with generous support from the Robert & Mary Weisbrod Foundation.
