Sebring's Smithsonian Exhibit Closing January 19

Traveling And Movement - Journey Stories

SEBRING, FL. -- The Highlands Art League’s Museum of the Arts (MOTA) is currently hosting a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibit in Downtown Sebring until Jan. 19 when the exhibit will close and move on to its next location.  

The Florida Humanities Council, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institute, is sponsoring the six-city Florida tour of Journey Stories - an exhibit that uses images, audio and artifacts to illustrate the critical roles that traveling and movement have played in building our diverse American society. 

“It has been exciting to host the Smithsonian Institution exhibit in our area as it has created a huge boost for art and culture for residents and tourists to enjoy,” said Debbie Kendrick, co-chair of the Highlands Art League of which MOTA is a part. “If you have not visited the exhibit, which also includes local Journey Stories, we encourage everyone to do so by Jan. 19.”

This exhibit that is free to enjoy is especially designed for small communities as part of the Smithsonian’s Museums on Main (MoMs) program. It features interactive components for children of all ages. If visitors read all of the information, it should be a 45-minute tour. MOTA hours are from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM Mondays-Saturdays through January 19.
