We have 48 hours left on Legacy Washington’s first Kickstarter Campaign to help raise the private funds needed for the next exhibit,Washington 1889: Blazes, Rails & the Year of Statehood. We are 40% towards our goal of $5,000 and need your help!
Washington 1889: Blazes, Rails & the Year of Statehood marks the sixth exhibit of Legacy Washington, an educational program within the Office of Secretary of State. This public exhibition celebrates the big stories of Washington’s seminal year, the year of Statehood. It will be on display in the Legislative Building from November, 2014 through August, 2015 and will feature exhibit panels, videos and artifacts including an eleven-foot 42 star flag that was specially made when Washington became a state. The exhibit will officially open on , alongside the Washington 125 celebrations, commemorating Washington’s 125th Anniversary. We hope you can join us in the festivities!
All funds raised through Kickstarter will specifically go towards the printing of the exhibit panels that are hung in the Secretary of State’s lobby in the Legislative Building (no state dollars are used for any of our exhibits). The Legislative Building and Secretary of State’s office welcome tens of thousands of people annually including student groups from across the state. Legacy Washington exhibits offer a unique and interactive opportunity for students to learn about our state’s history and the people who made it remarkable. All exhibits continue traveling to schools and museums throughout the state for free once they are taken down.

Kickstarter is a global crowd funding platform that helps “Bring creative projects to life.” Kickstarter projects range from everything from films, games, music, art, design, technology and more. What better way to garner support on the new exhibit than through Kickstarter?! We have 48 hours to make our goal for the new exhibit as Kickstarter is all-or-nothing funding platform - no one will be charged for a pledge unless our project reaches its funding goal!
