“Kozmic Clash: Peace, Love, and Outer Space” explores groundbreaking events of that year, including the Woodstock festival and the Apollo 11 space mission, and illustrates key achievements that occurred on both liberal and conservative fronts.

The exhibit features include a hands-on music gallery and a vintage Volkswagen bus. “Kosmic Clash” opens with a public reception at 4 p.m. Monday, April 22, in Rowe Hall. Admission is free and open to the public.
