Description:In addition to the permanent exhibits, the Museum of the South Dakota State Historical Society also features various temporary exhibits. Below is a list of the current temporary exhibits.
“The Spirit of the ‘70s” is in the Hogen Gallery until Spring 2019.
This exhibit features people, places and events that influenced history, society and popular culture both in South Dakota and around the nation in the 1970s. The exhibit addresses such issues as Wounded Knee II and Watergate, the war in Vietnam and the election of 1972 featuring South Dakotan George McGovern, the Democratic nominee for president. While the decade was filled with weighty issues and events, it had “less serious” cultural touchstones like mood rings, disco dancing and fashion accessories, like leisure suits and platform shoes. The interactive exhibit includes clips from movies, television and early music videos, as well as a home game of Pong from an original Atari system. From reminders of the nationwide bicentennial to events such as the Rapid City Flood, “The Spirit of the ‘70s” exhibit has a little something for everyone.
"From Jackrabbits to Schmeckfest: The Many Aspects of Community Identity in South Dakota" is in the Observation Gallery until September 2019.
The exhibit explores the variety of ways that community identity is established and how community is regularly reinforced. The exhibit addresses such topics as sports and mascots, community festivals and special events, agriculture, history, clubs and organizations as well as community culture in towns and cities across South Dakota. The exhibit will feature a few interactives such as creating your own mascot.
