Task Force DAGGER Temporary Exhibit
April 20 @ 8:00 am - September 3 @ 5:00 pm
Jack Britt High School students curated our new temporary exhibit featuring artifacts from Task Force DAGGER, America’s military response to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
The ASOM’s curatorial staff collaborated with Jack Britt’s Social Studies Department to launch the inaugural Curatorial Apprentice program, which provides hands-on experience for students interested in working in museums and learning about the steps involved in curating museum exhibits.
In addition to their research, students interviewed Task Force DAGGER veterans, including members of the United States Army’s 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), selected artifacts from the mission, wrote exhibit text, designed the text panels, created an interactive touchscreen program, and installed the exhibit.

The exhibit will run from April 20 until September 3rd and is available for viewing at no charge during the museum’s hours of operation.
