About the Exhibit
The exhibition spotlights the remarkable stories of individual Californios, women, Native Americans, and adventurers and gold seekers who emigrated from all parts of the world during the tumultuous and colorful Gold Rush era. James Marshall’s discovery changed the West irrevocably, and the legacy of the Gold Rush continues to shape California’s people, culture, environment, politics, and economy.
The “Gold Fever! The Untold Stories of the California Gold Rush” traveling exhibition tour was organized by Exhibit Envoy in partnership with the Cal Humanities. Exhibit Envoy provides traveling exhibitions and professional services to museums throughout California.
