The Exhibit

Words, photographs, audio and video, and historic artifacts—come see “What Has Passed and What Remains,” an exhibit that focuses on what oral history can tell us about environmental change at the Pioneer Museum in Flagstaff. Located in the historic Coconino County Hospital for the Indigent on Fort Valley Road, the Museum displays many artifacts, photographs, and documents relating to northern Arizona’s historic livelihoods and lifestyles. It is a branch of the Arizona Historical Society, which operates a number of historic museums and houses in Arizona.

“What Has Passed and What Remains” includes numerous color photographs of oral history narrators by Dan Boone and Ryan Belnap, as well as archival images showing what northern Arizona landscapes once looked like. It also features an interactive video display where visitors can see and hear narrators reminisce.

The exhibit opens April 21 with a gala opening event. It will remain on display indefinitely.
