Thanks to the Alabama Power Co., selected artifacts from BHC's museum collection will be on display to the general public in a special, free summer exhibit beginning Friday, May 16 and runing through Aug. 8, at the power company's main office downtown. "We knew the History Center's exhibits had been (temporarily) stored and we wanted to be able to bring it out, and keep it fresh in the public eye," said APCO archivist Bill Tharpe, a member of the BHC board.
Visitors to the upcoming exhibit should check in at the front desk inside the power company's building entrance at 600 18th Street North, in the middle of the block. The exhibit will be open M-F, 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Currently on display in that space are modern and historic ceramic pieces drawn from the Alabama Craft Council's 2014 Clay Conference, celebrating Alabama's 2014 "Year of the Pot."
