In honor of our current exhibit, DREAMs Deferred, our quarterly Family Day will celebrate Mexican and Central American cultures in Oregon. Curated by The Immigrant Story, DREAMs Deferred uses narratives, object stories, and vivid photography to amplify the voices of undocumented immigrants from Mexico and Central America who came to the United States as children or young adults.

Learn more about the cultures of our fellow community members with regional arts and crafts and performances by Mariachi los Temerosos (1:15pm and 2:15pm) and Ollin Yolliztli Aztec Dance (3pm).
Enjoy free admission to our museum exhibits, and read the powerful stories of the six DREAMers profiled in DREAMs Deferred.
