Members of Dallas’ Indian, Laotian, and Korean communities will be performing songs and dances from their cultures hourly, beginning at 1 pm.
Museums have numerous objects that are basic to the memory of the communities we live in. These objects are the expression of our natural and cultural heritage. Many of them are fragile, some endangered, and they need special care and conservation. International Museum Day 2011 is an opportunity to discover and rediscover our individual and collective memory.
Every year since 1977 International Museum Day is organized worldwide by the International Council of Museums. This day is an occasion to recognize the importance of museums in the development of society. Join us on May 14th at the International Museum of Cultures.
