Winter Exhibit Opening Day
Saturday, November 7, 2020 @ 10am
Opening day of the new, Winter exhibit at the Wayne County Museum, entitled The Immigrant Experience in Wayne County. Exhibit Description: “Now is an important time to bring our community together, even as the country seems more divided than it has ever been. We want to celebrate all of the different waves of immigrants, both past and present, that have arrived here and how they have contributed to and influenced the City and County. We want to examine the cultural traditions, foods, clothing, holidays, and histories of these groups. We want to explore their motivation for leaving their home countries, their personal struggles in assimilating to local culture, and their success stories. Our hope is that a better understanding of others will help to strengthen our community relations.”
The exhibit is free and runs through February 6, 2021.
