The Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition takes a look at the '70s using 90 remarkable color photographs taken for a federal photography project called Project DOCUMERICA. “Searching for the Seventies: The DOCUMERICA Photography Project” includes expected images of smog, polluted rivers and waste dumps. But the photos also capture the decade’s fashions, trends and lifestyles. From smokestacks to leisure suits, these images are a fascinating time capsule of ’70s America. The exhibition is open now through Friday, June 30th at the Stearns History Museum. The Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. There is a fee for this event.
