Exhibit on East Tennessee agriculture to begin Jan. 13

Posted

Agriculture has been a part of human subsistence for all of history.

More recently, there has been much less of a need for each individual family group to farm their own food.

The way our food is produced and harvested, as a result, has become somewhat foreign to most Americans.

“Grown and Bred in East Tennessee,” a new temporary exhibit at the Museum Center, will take a look at Tennessee agriculture and farming and how agricultural products were and continue to be grown and bred here in our region.

The staff at the Museum Center at Five Points is proud to display agricultural artifacts pertaining to our Ocoee Region.

Join us to discover more about our local agriculture, how food was produced before the 21st century and today.

This exhibit will be on view from Jan. 13 through May 27.

On Jan. 12 at 6 p.m., the museum will open “Grown and Bred in East Tennessee” with a special members-only opening reception.

The exhibit will open to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. the next day.

The Museum Center tells the story of the Ocoee region through compelling exhibitions and dynamic educational programming that promotes history, culture and preservation.

The Museum Store is open to the public, featuring arts, crafts and books from select artists, craftsman and authors from within a 200-mile radius.

Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The museum is closed Sunday, Monday and on select holidays.

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students, and free for children under 5. Museum members receive free admission.

Group rates are available and the museum’s facilities can be rented year-round for weddings and special events.
