The George & Eleanor McGovern Center at Dakota Wesleyan University opened to great fanfare in 2006. The center celebrates the life of the honorable liberal senator, from his humble rural roots to his legacy of leadership and hope. Split Rock Studios worked directly with George and Eleanor to tell the story as accurately as possible.
At a glance the visitors can see that this is not a typical museum exhibit. Theatrical lighting and geometric shapes fill the space, and seven video monitors with compelling and dramatic movies tell the McGovern’s story. Visitors can walk through themed environments and view collections of treasured memorabilia from the life and career of George McGovern.
