Building Cultural History in East Tennessee

November 8th, 2007

Maltbie-Kubik Selected to Integrate “Voices of the Land” Exhibit into Historical Building

The East Tennessee Historical Society (ETHS) has recently restored the 1874 Customs House located in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. The final phase of this restoration project will culminate with new displays for the huge inventory of historical objects and artifacts currently stored on site at the ETHS.

Maltbie, one of the foremost museum and gallery production firms in the world, has been selected for this phase of the prestigious project. Maltbie will bring their vast experience of integrating exhibits into historic structures, and their extensive knowledge of exhibit development and production to this 8,500 square foot project.

The new cultural exhibit, called “Voices of the Land: The People of East Tennessee”, will demonstrate to museum visitors how geography has influenced developments within the East Tennessee region. This special exhibit will take visitors from the time of the earliest settlers, through the Civil War era, and into the twentieth century using graphic imagery, hands-on activities, and mulit-media presentations throughout the exhibit to bring the collection to life.
