Crossroads: Change in Rural America is a traveling exhibit curated by the Smithsonian Institution and brought to Oklahoma by Oklahoma Humanities. The exhibit examines how small towns approach rural identity, community, land, perseverance, and managing change from a national perspective. Oklahoma communities that host the Crossroads exhibit weave in their local histories and share their stories through complementary programs.

Americans have relied on rural crossroads for generations. These places where people gather to exchange goods, services, and culture, and to engage in political and community discussions are an important part of our cultural fabric. The United States needs vibrant and sustainable rural communities. Americans, no matter where they live, rely on the products of the countryside (and the productivity of rural people) for food and fuel. The future is bright as small towns embrace the notion that their citizens and their cultural uniqueness are critical assets. Visit Crossroads in a town near you!
