The Heritage Society presents Asian Americans in Houston: A Kaleidoscope of Cultures opening day
The Heritage Society presents Asian Americans in Houston: A Kaleidoscope of Cultures. The focus of the exhibition will be on Asian Americans in Houston and their many contributions to our city and its culture. Topics will include an overview of Asian immigration, a Buddhist temple, and stories of Houstonians who trace their ancestry to China, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, and South Asia. The museum exhibit will bring to life the stories in the articles by featuring artifacts, photographs, and documents representing a cultural bridge between Asian and Houstonian.
Asian Americans in Houston is the result of a collaborative effort with the University of Houston’s Houston History Magazine. The Heritage Society is funded in part by a grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
The exhibit will be on display through January 16, 2016.
