HOLLAND, Michigan - The Holland Museum is announcing the opening of their newest

exhibit, Newsflash! The Story of Journalism in Holland on November 17, 2023.

This exhibit reflects on the history of local media outlets including the Holland Sentinel and

WHTC. In addition, this exhibit explores the evolution of journalism and the important role it

has played in developing the City of Holland. Many of the objects on display come from the

collection of local photographer, journalist, and historian Randy Vande Water.

“Newsflash! The Story of Journalism in Holland will highlight how journalism unified Holland

in its earliest days and how it continues to shape our community even as technology evolves,”

says Maddalena Frissora, Holland Museum’s Exhibits Coordinator. “Through this exhibit

visitors will gain a deeper understanding of journalism and how it is so much more than the

news. No matter its form, journalism remains a form of storytelling that brings us all together.”

The exhibit will be on display until April 8, 2024.

This exhibit is supported by Collaborator Sponsor: Horizon Bank, Partner Sponsors: Boileau &

Co. and DeNooyer Chevrolet, and Media Sponsor: WGVU/PBS TV and NPR Radio.

In addition to the exhibit, the Holland Museum will be hosting a series of exhibit-related

programming. The first in this series will take place on Thursday, December 7th at the Museum.

Join local media personalities past and present as they discuss their careers, important news

stories they have covered, and the challenges and joys of covering the news in Holland. Panelists

include Cassandra Lybrink, Gary Stevens, Lupita Reyes, and Paul Van Kolken.
