                                        Redlined: Cities, Suburbs and Segregation 

This new special exhibit promises to take visitors on a deep dive on the history of redlining from its origins to lingering legacies. Using artifacts from the Johnson County Museum, State Historical Society of Missouri, and images from more than 20 institutions, this exhibit shows how Johnson County and the region both shaped and was shaped by the federal policy of redlining. An art exhibit within the history exhibit featuring works from the African American Artists Collective provides opportunities for people to reflect on redlining from different perspectives. This special exhibition is open through January 7, 2023.
