Talkin' 'Bout My Generation

This exhibition explores how the changing culture and politics of the 1960s and 1970s touched people in our local area. Events on the national stage – such as the civil rights movement,  the assassinations of public figures, the war in Vietnam, the women's movement, urban riots and campus unrest, the space program, and Watergate  – echoed in the lives of people in and around Fairfield. The music and culture of this era, along with its political and social transformations, helped shape the world we still live in today. 

"Talkin' 'Bout My Generation" was on view from March 31-September 17, 2017 at the Fairfield Museum. 


Exhibition curated by Laurie Lamarre and Elizabeth Rose. Design by Christopher Molinsky, Vertical Design. Online exhibit edited by Lauren Sweeney.
