An exhibit at Troy University’s Rosa Parks Library and Museum has received an award from a worldwide trade association which recognizes excellence in the entertainment industry.
The TEA (Themed Entertainment Association) chose the “Cleveland Avenue Time Machine” in the Children’s Wing of the Rosa Parks Library and Museum for its highest honor, a THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement. The Time Machine was honored in the area of “Exhibit on a Limited Budget.”
“This is outstanding recognition for Troy University and the Rosa Parks Library and Museum,” said Ray White, vice chancellor of Troy University’s Montgomery Campus, who served as the project manager for the building of the museum and children’s wing. “THEA Awards have been presented to attractions such as Disneyland, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in London and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois, so we are proud to join that distinguished company of honorees.”
The “Cleveland Avenue Time Machine” was designed by Eisterhold Associates of Kansas City, MO; Jan Bochenek of Virginia; Ben Lawless of Maryland; Peter Vogt of Washington, DC; and Hadley Exhibits of New York.
