History of the Kent State University May 4 Visitors Center

After years of effort by a team of dedicated individuals, the May 4 Visitors Center opened its doors in May of 2013 with filmmaker Oliver Stone and PBS news anchor Gwen Ifill participating as part of the dedication ceremony. A project years in the making, the center uses a range of audio visual materials (media production) to tell the story of the months leading up to the Kent State Shootings, the events of May 4, 1970, and the historical impact felt in the aftermath. Faculty, administrators, students, community members, veterans, and humanities scholars worked together with local historians to determine the museum's content and design the Visitors Center, a process known as script writing. Feedback was solicited from all circles through public forums and focus groups. The project was made possible by a 300,000 dollar grant from the National Endowment of the Humanities and by a combined 667,000 dollars in funding from all 16 deans from every Kent State campus and college. The design firm of Gallagher and Associates worked with Kent State to design the displays. Exhibits were constructed by Exhibit Concepts, Inc. Laura Davis and Carole Barbato along with GTOO Media produced a film titled, "A Turning Point" which shows on a loop in the center's second gallery. The film won the Golden Eagle Award from the Council on International Non Theatrical Events in 2013. The Visitors Center also received an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Ohio Local History Alliance (OLHA) in 2014. The Visitors Center is located in room 101 of Taylor Hall, 300 Midway Drive on the Kent State Campus.
