Message in a Bottle Traveling Exhibition
With Environmental Hero Chad Pregracke
This traveling exhibition brings together storytelling, Americana, history, romance, and conservation. Curated from over 11.2 million pounds of discarded treasures and other debris pulled from the Mississippi, Illinois, and Ohio rivers over the past 24 years, these preserved bottles carried heartfelt messages of love, hope, and other amusements. They were recovered by Living Lands and Waters, the nation's only industrial-strength river clean-up organization, founded by CNN Hero of the Year Chad Pregracke and supported by more than 120,000 volunteers.
The exhibition requires 850-square feet of space and comes with 50 preserved bottles and messages displayed in reclaimed wood boxes, housed on 16 podiums with supporting graphics, videos, and signage. There are also 10 additional bottles available with adult-only messaging. Chad is also available to speak at opening night events and other donor functions to bring the exhibition to life through stories.
