Close Up: Cinema Along the River
The booming film industries of Georgia and Alabama have showcased the states’ communities on the silver screen for years, and the Chattahoochee Valley is no exception. Whether in Columbus, Phenix City, Fort Benning, or other nearby towns, film crews have brought Hollywood to the area while inspiring local filmmakers to create their own cinematic works. This exhibition spotlights the numerous movie and television productions filmed or set in the Chattahoochee Valley, as well as depictions of the area and the greater Southeastern region in American cinema. The careers and innovations of local screen actors, filmmakers, and theater companies past and present will be discussed, as well as movie stars and other luminaries who visited the area for work or personal reasons. A partial list of the productions to be featured includes We Were Soldiers, Sweet Home Alabama, Norma Rae, Warm Springs, Kiss of the Tarantula, Black Hawk Down, Need for Speed, The Green Berets, The Phenix City Story, The Homesman, Tank, Your Mother Wears Combat Boots, and Eat White Dirt.

Museum
Common Grounds
Columbus residents today know the South Commons as home to the Civic Center and Golden Park, but they might not realize that the city was once surrounded by a public greenbelt. This exhibition utilizes maps, artifacts, and images to examine the former Commons areas set aside by Columbus’ founders as public green spaces. The South Commons has been home to ball fields, race tracks, and other recreational pursuits since the city’s early years, but similar spaces also existed on the north and east sides of the city.

History/Science,Museum
From Flying Aces to Army Boots
Once thought of as the war to end all wars, World War I ushered in a new era of global military engagements. The United States’ entry for the last 18 months of the war also marked a shift in American foreign policy. This exhibition explores the effects of World War I in the Chattahoochee Valley. Beyond military history, the exhibition will look at the social and political climate in the region during the first years of the war, 1914-1917, and changes to the home front during 1917-1918, alongside the local opinion of President Woodrow Wilson and the Treaty of Versailles. The experiences of local soldiers who fought in World War I receive special attention, as well as the impetus for the creation of Camp (now Fort) Benning at the end of the war as a U.S. Army infantry training school. African Americans’ service in the war, the life and career of Columbus native and French flying ace Eugene Bullard, and women’s volunteer service at home and abroad are showcased.
