Crane House hallway, Montclair Historical Society

The Montclair Historical Society's Many Voices exhibition opened October 2014.  MPC curated the exhibition and the re-interpretation of two period rooms in the historic Crane House.  Read the Montclair Times article about the exhibition and TapInto Montclair's coverage of the re-opening. 

Read more about the research and development process and how the site interpretation changed in Claudia's guest blogpost.
 
A blogger who visited The Montclair Historical Society draws a comparison of the new exhibition and interpretation in the Crane House to the Tenement Museum in NYC. 
 
The New York Times also wrote about the Crane House reinterpretation and exhibition. 
 
 While the project was in process, hear Claudia talking about the exhibition - and other museum topics - on Humanities Connection , a radio program sponsored by The NJ Council for the Humanities.
 
MPC also worked on the related documentary, A Place to Become: Montclair through the eyes of the Glenridge Avenue YWCA Women, 1920-1965 which debuted May 2014 at the Montclair Film Festival.

NY Times article about the exhibition co-curated by Claudia.

Star-Ledger article about the exhibition, written by music critic Tris McCall.

Mary Case, Organizational Coach for Qm2, said this about the exhibition:
What a wonderful surprise to learn that you were associated with the summer exhibit I enjoyed so much at The Morris Museum.  I know you must have mounted it for a shoe-string, but the intelligence was everywhere, and you were able to keep the audios from bleeding over each other. Congratulations and all continued success!
