From the Subcontinent to the Prairie: Stories of Immigration and Identity
This exhibit will share stories from individual members from campus and local South Asian and South Asian-American communities. We are seeking to borrow objects to display in this exhibit and help create deeper, richer understanding of the cultural experiences and identities of community members.
Other components of this exhibit are two small displays borrowed from other agencies: The Indian American Experience in Chicago from the National Indo-American Museum (Chicago) (external link) and South Asian American History, Culture, & Community from the South Asian American Policy & Research Institute (Chicago) (external link).
This exhibit is planned in conjunction with Spurlock Museum’s participation in a National Endowment for the Arts Big Read Program focusing on the novel The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
