BENEFITING: PATRIOTS POINT NAVAL AND MARITIME MUSEUM FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2010

HOURS PLEDGED: 200

THE STORY:

The USS Yorktown is a unique museum venue that has limited space that is climate controlled and protected from the elements. As a result, 90% of the collection is not on display and traveling exhibits are not currently possible. A temporary exhibit space aboard the Yorktown would be multi-use; increase educational opportunities, expand the possibilities of exhibits and overall, add a valuable addition to the museum.

Specific Benefits of a Temporary Exhibit Space:
• Compliment to education center
• Increase revenue
• Allow us to get a lot of artifacts in storage out for rotating displays (ie. Weapons exhibit)
• Potential traveling exhibits
• Membership programs
• Use education classroom for lectures and then have exhibit space

What it would take to make it happen:
• Tear out
• Climate Control
• Lead Abatement
• Insulating
• Security System

How You Can Help:
We are currently working on a documentary photo project of veterans that served aboard the USS Yorktown during WWII, The Korean War and Vietnam. We are preserving and honoring their heritage, by creating a series of portraits and memorabilia that will become an exhibit aboard the museum. Funds raised will go toward a temporary exhibit space to expand educational opportunities and what the museum can showcase.
