Oshcar Awards at the Oshkosh Public Museum

When I first heard about this exhibit, I got really excited and couldn’t wait to tell you about it. It started November 3rd.  and will be here until April 28th. at the Oshkosh Public Museum.  This is the first-ever Oshcar Awards, a red-carpet exhibit and awards ceremony to honor outstanding artifacts from the museum’s collections.

The Oshcars brings the stardom and glamour of Hollywood to Oshkosh with more than 100 star-quality artifacts will compete in 20 historically themed categories, with an intense mêlée expected among favorites in categories such as Faces from the Past and Keeping Warm.

The individual artifacts up for awards represent a diverse background of trades, talents and times. Rumored to be in attendance are noted icons and other luminaries, including Historic Art Glass and Unique Uniforms. Aside from bumping elbows with renowned relics, the awards gallery will feature individual memoirs and personal interviews with VIP artifacts. Meet the character behind the object with moving personal interviews detailing early upbringings, first gigs and stories of their rise to fame.

This clever and engaging exhibit grants red carpet access to all museum guests and invites the entire community to participate in the awards show by casting votes for the prestigious awards. As members of the Academy, each museum visitor will receive an official Oshcars ballot to submit for voting in each category. A formal Oshcars Awards ceremony will be held in February to announce winners.
