Flood Anniversary Exhibit Now at Nashville Public Library

The Nashville Flood Anniversary Exhibit is now on display at the Nashville Public Library! You can view the exhibit in the Nashville Room on the second floor of the downtown Main library. The exhibit will be displayed at the library until the end of the year.

The Nashville Flood Anniversary Exhibit depicts the May 2010 flood and the city’s recovery with pictures, stories, and video footage. Commissioned by Mayor Karl Dean’s office and paid for by private donation, the exhibit was created in partnership with The Tennessean and 1220 Exhibits, a local museum and trade show exhibit company. The exhibit made its debut at the city’s flood anniversary ceremony Voices Rising: Remembering One Year Later at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and then traveled to community centers that served as Disaster Information Centers after the flood.
