Dreams of Our America

Our America encompasses many dreams for the future. This evening we partner with Latin American students from Chattanooga State and the College’s theater department in a performance that explore these dreams. The performance will be held in the exhibition galleries and will include an opportunity for audience dialogue.

Dicke Family Endowment, Sheila Duignan and Mike Wilkins, Tania and Tom Evans, Friends of the National Museum of the American Latino, The Michael A. and the Honorable Marilyn Logsdon Mennello Endowment, Henry R. Muñoz III, Wells Fargo and Zions Bank. Additional significant support was provided by The Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center. Support for “Treasures to Go,” the museum’s traveling exhibition program, comes from The C.F. Foundation, Atlanta.
