A Call To Action

Don't let your artifacts sit in the attic gathering dust. The Museum Center at 5ive Points is currently looking for certain artifacts for temporary exhibits and additions to our permanent exhibit. 

We are looking for the following:

The Museum Center at 5ive Points needs items for our upcoming Lee University Centennial exhibit (tentatively set to begin July 26th of this year). We are looking for athletic uniforms, trophies of any kind, various mementos (such as class rings, flags, etc.), items from Centenary College and Bob Jones College days, and other items significant to the university's history. 

Items we do NOT need: diplomas, yearbooks, books of any kind, letters, coursebooks/coursework, assignments, and most paper items with the exception of photos. 

Terms: These items would be on temporary loan for the duration of the exhibit and will be returned after the end of the exhibit. These items MUST be in the museum's possession from July 19th to September 24th (no exceptions). If you have items you wish to donate, please contact lshirkey@museumcenter.org with photos of the items. If accepted, you will be e-mailed a form to sign and will need to drop off the items between July 9th-19th during museum hours.

We will be commemorating the Trail of Tears in one exhibit and are looking for a donation of baby moccasins and a silk/crepe/fabric Cherokee rose.
