‘LATINAS en LENAWEE’ Exhibit to honor Latinas
ADRIAN: During Hispanic Heritage Month, Adrian College will present the exhibit Latinas en Lenawee in the Heritage Room of Shipman Library as part of the College’s celebration—the exhibit runs from September 15th through October 10th 2008.
Latinas en Lenawee is a photo and text exhibit, highlighting the accomplishments of the many Latinas who live and work in Lenawee County. These include women from the United States, México, Guatemala, and other Latin American countries.
These women work in classrooms, kitchens, offices, and shops; they are social workers, artists, mothers, and neighbors. The women were selected to represent the diversity among Latinas in the county in terms of careers, age, education, and country of origin.
The display is organized by Idalí Feliciano, Director of Multicultural Student Services at Adrian College and Don Cellini, a faculty member in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular Library hours: Monday-Thursday 8:00 A.M. – 11:00 P.M., Friday 8:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M., Saturday noon-5:00 P.M. and Sunday noon – 11:00 P.M.
The Heritage Room is located in Shipman Library off of Williams Street on the Adrian College campus. For more information on the exhibit please contact Idalí Feliciano at 517-264-3278 or via e-mail at [email protected].
