Exhibit Opening: The Asian Indian Experience in McLean County

Join us for a special program presented in honor of those who assisted and participated in the Museum’s ongoing Asian Indian History Project, and to celebrate the new installation in the People Gallery.

Asian Indian immigrants began arriving in McLean County in the 1960s. They came seeking jobs and a better life. This installation in the People gallery of the permanent exhibit “Encounter on the Prairie” explores the challenges they experienced and reveals the efforts made to maintain important traditions and practices while, at the same time,
embracing American culture.
