To mark the 30th anniversary of 1989’s Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, the NCSML tells the story in an original exhibition that features film footage, eyewitness accounts, music, and an array of artifacts.
The exhibit will explore the year 1989 as communist regimes worldwide experienced major unrest, including stories from China, East Germany, Poland, and Czechoslovakia.
Visitors will have the opportunity to make their own screen-printed poster in a workshop adjacent to the gallery. Workshop hours are: Mon. -Sat. 11:30-3:30 p.m. and 12:00 -4:00 p.m. on Sun.
