The Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit Program is a series of permanent sidewalk exhibits at sixteen landmark sites throughout downtown Ann Arbor. Each exhibit has a theme. The first exhibit, installed in 1999, illustrates the hustle and bustle of town life that once centered on Courthouse Square. Subsequent exhibits throughout the downtown showcase the city's artistic heritage and the roles of business, banking, manufacturing and education in shaping the community. An online tour of the exhibit is also available at: http://www.aadl.org/aastreets. This DVD, narrated by Ann Arbor historian, Wystan Stevens, traces the evolution of the project from a grassroots-level initiative to a community-wide enterprise generously funded and supported by Ann Arbor citizens, local government, and corporations. The film includes an overview of the various design and installation processes involved and a list of donors and sponsors.

Stevens will discuss their new book The Little Brown Jug: The Michigan-Minnesota Football Rivalry, and the history of this legendary contest between the two teams Wednesday, September 10, 7 pm at the Malletts Creek Branch.
