BROWSE the virtual exhibition

Join us in celebrating the research and efforts of social studies studies from across the city. The work compiled by participating students was slated to go on view at the Apple Tree House in March 2020, but was delayed due to the pandemic. The Office of Cultural Affairs collaborated with social studies teachers from Jersey City Public Schools to institute curriculum and projects that focused on research of women's history, from local to internationally-known women. The participating students were to have their research on display at the Apple Tree House along with a museum buildout- complete with women suffrage banner replicas, display of professional artwork centering female figures throughout history, and a Votes for Women sashes, buttons and hats! Take a look through our virtual gallery to soak in all the rich components of the History Fair.

This programming and virtual exhibition was made possible by a grant from the New Jersey Council of the Humanities.
