“Dutchirican” Open House & Curator Tours

Join us for special evening hours to celebrate the exhibition, Dutchirican: A Latinx History of Central Pennsylvania! Visitors will be able to view the special exhibit and talk to curators Dr. Ivette Guzmán-Zavala and Dr. John Hinshaw of Lebanon Valley College about their research into when, how, and why Latinx peoples have moved to Central Pennsylvania over the last 75 years. Light refreshments will be served.

Dutchirican: A Latinx History of Central Pennsylvania is an exhibit developed by Dr. Ivette Guzmán-Zavala and Dr. John Hinshaw of Lebanon Valley College and their students. The exhibit tells the story of the Latinx community in central Pennsylvania through photographs and artifacts, including a reproduction casita, or “little house,” lived in by migrant workers in the 1950s. The exhibit traces the history of a diverse community from the American Revolution to the present and explores the rich contributions Latinx peoples have made to Lancaster County and the surrounding region.
