The Blessings of Liberty: The U.S. Constitution

Beginning July 1, 2022, Salado Museum and College Park will present “The Blessings of Liberty: The U.S. Constitution,” an exhibition prepared for travel by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

“The Blessings of Liberty” is an exhibition that examines the document upon which our country was founded: the United States Constitution. Written to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,” the Constitution is short, simple, and often ambiguous. As the blueprint for our nation’s government, it represents a set of beliefs and a way of life. This exhibition seeks to explain the immense importance of a document that holds answers to challenging questions of government, cryptic though it may seem.

Developed by a national consortium of scholars and institutions, “The Blessings of Liberty” consists of twelve poster panels addressing the transformation of the United States from a group of colonies to a nation united by a single document.

The exhibition will be on display for the public from July 1, 2022 to July 29, 2022. For more information about viewing hours or to arrange group visits, contact Michele Melsha at 254-947-532 or

Humanities Texas develops and supports diverse programs across the state, including lectures, oral history projects, teacher institutes, museum exhibitions and documentary films. For more information, please visit Humanities Texas online at or call 512.440.1991.
