Sounds of Indiana exhibit on display at Putnam Museum

Monday, December 12, 2011

The Indiana Historical Society will be hosting the traveling exhibition, "Sound Effects" at the Putnam County Museum in Greencastle.

The exhibition includes award-winning color and black-and-white photographs that express the sounds found in Indiana.

"Sound Effects" opened Tuesday, Dec. 6 at the local museum and runs through Thursday, Jan. 5.

The photographs were among those entered in the Historical Society's annual statewide photography contest and illustrate sounds, including natural, industrial, manmade, musical, urban and other colorful sounds throughout the state's 92 counties. Photographs were chosen from professional, amateur and student categories.

The photographs in the exhibition also complement the museum's most recent music exhibit, "Notes and Beats," which will be on display until January.

The Putnam County Museum is located at 1105 N. Jackson St., Greencastle.
