American Spirits:
The Rise and Fall of Prohibition”
Free lecture 

Sarah Winski, developer of the National Constitution Center’s 2012 exhibition “American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition,” tells the fascinating story of the Prohibition era—America’s most colorful and complex constitutional hiccup. She will also give a behind-the-scenes look at the triumphs and tribulations of mounting the exhibition, currently on a 10-city, nationwide tour.
Sarah Winski is the Exhibition Developer at the National Constitution Center, having worked there since its 2003 opening. Over the last 12 years, she has been involved with every aspect of the museum’s educational programming and exhibitions. In her current role, Sarah leads the exhibit content development process. This includes research, setting interpretive goals, coordinating with curators, scholars, and designers, and script writing. She has served as the lead developer for three feature exhibitions—Ancient Rome & America, Art of the American Soldier, and American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition—as well as a number of projects within the Center’s permanent galleries. The latter two feature exhibitions have earned her American Alliance of Museums Excellence in Exhibition Label Writing awards. Currently living in Manayunk, Sarah is also a Torresdale native and a graduate of Nazareth Academy and Temple University.
