OZARK, AL (WSFA) -

The Making Alabama Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit is officially on display at the Rudd Art Center in downtown Ozark as Alabama prepares to celebrate it’s 200th birthday next year.

“It’s a treat to have it here, said Ann Rudd the president of the Dale County Council Arts and Humanities. “This show is one of four exhibits that the Alabama humanities foundation is sending around the state of Alabama,” said Dale County Arts and Humanities President Ann Rudd.

Touchscreen monitors are located throughout the exhibit and will show patrons the history of the state from its early days all the way until the present.

“This is just a very attractive display with freestanding, large kiosks with illustrations of Alabama symbols, illustrations of famous Alabamians, and touchscreen computers that have the stories from the 1700s to the present,” said Rudd.

Rudd believes this exhibit is a good way to showcase how much the state has grown over the past 200 years.

“It just is a feel good opportunity to mix and mingle and learn where we come from and how Alabama is progressing and changing,” said Rudd.

The exhibit is free and open to the public every Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. until June 23.
