The opening reception for “Storytelling: Hmong American Voices” is this Friday, February 2nd from 5:30-8:30 pm at the Aurora Public Library Dunham Atrium. Presented by Northern Illinois University’s Pick Museum of Anthropology and Aurora Public Library, the exhibition tells the stories of local Hmong Americans through objects and personal stories.
From the Pick Museum:
“This exhibit immerses visitors in the Hmong history and material culture and explores what it means to be Hmong American. Visitors will be able to view traditional clothing, Hmong textiles, and silverwork jewelry, and learn about concepts of home, spirituality and memory. How has Hmong life changed since refugees first entered the United States in the 1970s? What does it mean to be Hmong American today?”
Opening remarks begin at 5:40 pm and refreshments and a live performance by the First Hmong Alliance Church Choir will follow.
