Movie Day at Museum views Brown, Genius

Friday, March 23, 2007

Did ice and snow prevent you from attending the Museum's Roast-A-Relic fundraiser celebrating Dorothy Brown or viewing the NOVA special Percy Julian: Forgotten Genius?

Then come to the Putnam County Museum on Saturday to see the shows. From 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the Museum will show a video of the Feb. 24 Roast-A-Relic, featuring stories, tributes, and jabs shared by Diana LaViolette, Judy Johnson, Shawn Gobert, Alan Hill, Kelsey Kauffman, Bob Bottoms, the Phi Psi Fraternity members and several audience members.

Then take a break for lunch and return from 2-4 p.m., for NOVA's Percy Julian: Forgotten Genius, a special two-hour presentation starring Tony-award winning actor Ruben Santiago-Hudson. NOVA brings Julian's scientific breakthroughs and gripping biography to life, with vivid period reenactments based on newly opened family archives and interviews with dozens of colleagues and relatives. See www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/julian/ for more information about the NOVA program.

The Putnam County Museum is located at 1105 N. Jackson St. in Greencastle. The museum collects, preserves, and interprets the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the county and its people through education, exhibits and special programs. Museum hours are Tuesday-Friday from 1-4 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and by appointment. Additional information can be obtained at the website www.co.putnam.in.us/Museum or by contacting museum director Stacy Klingler at 653-8419 or museum@co.putnam.in.us.
