Boeing Centennial Exhibit to Include Contributions From the Public

Boeing is celebrating their first one hundred years by planning a year-long celebration featuring items from the company’s history in a centennial exhibit due to open at Seattle’s Museum of Flight in May. Boeing’s aim behind this endeavor is to convey that an object, such as the famous photograph of the Memphis Belle, a pilot’s lapel pin or a company coin rubber purse, can inform and bring us closer to an emotional experience with history.

Although museum-quality pieces will be shown, it is the contributions of personal articles by regular people who may have had a special connection to Boeing that will make the event extra special.

On March 11 and April 13, a small jury of experts will be on hand at the Museum of Flight to evaluate the public’s possessions, and those selected will be showcased as part of the larger display of the Centennial Celebration.

Among the collections already obtained for the exhibit are official photos from NASA’s Lunar Orbiter Project, including the famous “Earthrise” photograph from 1966.

Wondering what you could offer the Centennial Celebration? Even if you have no physical artifacts to exhibit, Boeing encourages you to tell your story on Twitter using the hashtag #boeing100.
