AWHT Centennial Exhibit

AWHT Centennial Exhibit travels throughout Arizona for three years.
Funded by the Arizona Humanities Council and Arizona Public Service,
the exhibit has proven quite popular and has been a well received
public educational project, particularly in the rural areas of the state.
