Over the summer, I interned with the Sheboygan County Historical Society and Museum in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I was hired specifically to serve as the Museum Curator Tamara Lange’s summer intern. As well as assisting with everyday operations, I was assigned the project of writing, designing, and installing a new permanent exhibit for the museum. The Museum choose to remove an exhibit which had been in place since the 1990s, replacing it with one that featured the Sheboygan based, nationally known 1950s quartet, the Chordettes (most famously known for singing Mr. Sandman and Lollipop) called Harmonizing Heroines: Sheboygan’s Chordettes.
The Sheboygan County Historical Museum hosted it’s first ever Outdoor Movie Night on July 12, 2019. There was so much anticipation leading up to the night and we were thrilled with the turn out! All ages and generations came out to enjoy Singin’ in the Rain (1952), including families with younger kids and teens, young couples on dates – cue the aww factor! Everyone enjoyed popcorn while watching cartoons and our feature film in front of the historic 1864 Weinhold Log Cabin. In this blog, Chloe will share more information, and a lot of fun facts about the film!
