Exhibits

  1. Eisenhower's Middle Road

    October 14, 2019, 9:00 AM - March 31, 2020, 4:45 PM @ Library 2nd Floor Gallery

    Notice: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Effective Friday, March 13 at 5 p.m. CDT, the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum is closed to the public until further notice. Exhibit summary: Dwight D. Eisenhower’s leadership style as President reflected his Midwestern roots: Work from the middle to accomplish what those on the extremes saw as impossible. This exhibit spotlights a prescription for peace and prosperity that guided Ike throughout his eight years in the White House. He sought balance for America while refraining from government overreach. This exhibit explores six key areas reflecting that approach. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home provided content and design. Work/research was funded by a grant to the Eisenhower Foundation from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation of Kansas City, Missouri. We extend special appreciation to the David Woods Kemper Foundation, presenting sponsor of this exhibit.

Public Programs

  1. Rescheduled Movie: "The Bookshop" [2017] - Arts Council of Dickinson County Winter Film Festival

    March 1, 2020, 2:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    Rescheduled from January 12: In 1959 England, free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) opens a bookshop in a conservative coastal town. While she earns the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy), the chief thorn in Florence’s side is Violet Gamart (Patricia Clarkson), a wealthy, delicately ruthless grand dame who claims that she wants to turn the building into an arts center — and will stop at nothing to have her way. Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's acclaimed novel, "The Bookshop" is a parable about personal resolve, power, and suppression. This series is sponsored by the Arts Council of Dickinson County in partnership with the Eisenhower Presidential Library. The film is free and open to the public. You're invited to bring toiletry items which the Arts Council will donate to the Abilene Area Food Pantry.
