Smithsonian Institute’s Museum Day Live! to Feature Center for Hmong Studies

Concordia University’s Center for Hmong Studies has been selected as one of a number of cultural institutions across the United States as a partner for the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum Day Live! event on March 12, 2016. Held during Women’s History Month, this “special edition” of Smithsonian’s signature Museum Day Live! event will encourage all people, and particularly women and girls of color, to explore their nation’s museums, cultural institutions, zoos, aquariums, parks and libraries – which will offer free admission for the day.

The Center for Hmong Studies on Concordia’s campus is home to one of the largest collections of books, DVDs, embroideries, photographs, historical documents, and artifacts relating to the Hmong experience.
