America I Am

Traveling Exhibition


The African American Imprint

A 2010 Thea Award recipient for traveling exhibition, this 10,000 sq. ft. the touring museum, presented by Tavis Smiley, hit the road in early 2009. Developed in partnership with The Smiley Group, Inc, and organized by Arts and Exhibitions International and Cincinnati Museum Center, the tour’s 12 galleries were based on original concept design by The Hettema Group. America I AM: The African American Imprint features more than 150 artifacts that tell the story of the nation’s African people and their legacies through objects, texts, religion, music, narration, and media culled from every period of U.S. history.

The Hettema Group provided exhibition design for this project, which was produced by Seruto & Company for AEG and the Tavis Smiley Group.
