FOX THEATRE DEVELOPS FOX IN A BOX, AN INTERACTIVE TRAVELING EXHIBIT, WEAVING THE NATION’S HISTORY THROUGH THE ICONIC THEATER’S OWN TIMELINE
ATLANTA, GA, Feb. 16, 2015 – The Fox Theatre Institute (FTI) has launched Fox in a Box, an interactive school exhibit focused on how important events in the theater’s timeline intersect with key classroom learnings, from American history and the Civil Rights Movement to economics and the importance of communities.
“Fox in a Box challenges elementary students to think about how communities come together to share an experience and to protect what’s important to them,” said Carmie McDonald, FTI’s Community Engagement Manager. “The exhibit illustrates how art, culture, and humanity connect to create a better community and better reality for our world. As we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Save the Fox campaign, our goal is to teach students about the role that the people of Atlanta played in saving the Fox, showing them that anyone can make a difference in their community.”
